ANNOUNCEMENT: DEFCON 201 Weekly Live Streaming Shows & Meeting Video Archives
For those who have been showing up for the past two months, thanks to COVID-19 we have visualized all of our meet ups on a variety of platforms. Despite the few early hurdles and issues, we have had great success reaching out to an online internet world, connecting all of us local regulars while allowing to people who could never attend our meetings a digital window into our world.
This is why we are proud to announce that in addition to our meetings, we will have multiple types of hacking programming, technical and cultural, on all of our live-stream platforms!
Tiltify - DEFCON 201 Fred Hutch COVID-19 Research Charity Fundraiser
At Fred Hutch, our passion is to cure cancer so that nobody loses anyone they care about to this disease. For more than…
For those catching us on Twitch, DEFCON 201 will be using Tiltify in May to raise funds for Fred Hutch, one of the top ten biomedical research institutions that has reacted with unprecedented speed and cooperation to curb the threat of the novel coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19. They are using the coronavirus DNA crowd-sourced from scientists around the world, experts at Fred Hutch and the University of Basel in Switzerland are tracking how the virus is changing as it moves through people and countries. They’re sharing their data on their open source platform, Nextstrain.org and scientists and public health officials around the world are using it to monitor the pandemic and slow the spread of infection. This is part of our efforts as hackers to fight the devastation caused by COVID-19!
