:..>We have been batting this idea back and forth for a long time and now we are ready to begin to set this in motion. In this Open Workshop, we are going to start the main pre-production on creating our own 201 CTF team. Things that will be decided on such as “what will the name be?”, “what equipment can we source to make our own practice drills and where do we source them?” and “what skill sets do we want to develop to grow the team?” will be brought up here. This will be an ongoing project that will be reoccurring for multiple DEFCON 201 meet ups that we hope to eventually spin into it’s own thing.

:..>What To Bring: A mind that is interested in joining a CTF to develop ones technical and teamwork skills and have fun doing it. If you have CTF and/or CTF closed network creation hardware examples please bring them with you!


:..> There has been a long tradition of DEFCON Groups creating their own badges to identify their members inside the convention. Since a portion of us would like to attend DEFCON in 2018, we want to start right away on the idea and execution for our badge.

:..>What To Bring: Design, hardware an programming skills Most importantly: awesome ideas that think outside the box!
