This half-day workshop engages participants in the construction of a tool for interventions into wireless infrastructure space. The workshop is open to all skill levels and interests and assumes no prior knowledge of networking, electronics or programming. Participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of wireless networking and will program the device to create wireless access points, embedded web servers and custom packet injectors. The focus of these activities is to explore networks and imagine creative uses of the networking medium for activism and personal expression. The cost of the workshop is approximately 50USD, and participants will leave with the devices they construct.
