Welcome to the December 2021 DCG 201 Meet Up!

UPDATE: Due to the spike on Omnicron, we are unfortunately canceling our In-Person part of the meet up. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will be LIVE Streaming at 7pm EST!

It’s here. We FINALLY did it! We are at the final stretch of what was 2021. To who ever thought everything was going to return to normal (what ever the heck that means)…sorry? Man it’s been a wild ride, but we like to think we are ending this year a little better than we did last year.

So after some frustrations for the past couple of months of getting a hybrid style of meet-up off the ground, join us for some cozy shenanigans at our old haunt!

Get some awesome food at SubCulture, play games with us, build us a cardboard VR contraption, learn lockpicking, hack some Retro computers and who knows? Maybe you will even find Jesus in your code.

But we only have one question…

Can you make it dance?

Some activities, chats, talks, workshops and DCG 201 insanity will be broadcasted online via our LIVE STREAMS per the new normal!

Log4Jesus: How The Power Of Christ Compels Computers

:..> Christiantiy is one the major three branches of what’s known as the Abrahamic religions and is one of if not one of the most popular religions world wide. So naturally, as tech has evolved, Christian hackers have left their cross-shaped footprint on the tapestry of computing. Join us as we look at things from the original Printing Press, to Christian Video Games, a holy database programming language, Bibles on Blockchain and yes…the infamous Temple OS.

:.>Bio: A Co-Founder of DCG 201, an open group for hacker workshop projects in North East New Jersey, Sidepocket is constantly wanting to help people to get better at whatever they want to do and learn. He also has a history with NYC 2600, Radio Statler at Hackers on Planet Earth, Phone Losers of America, Museum of Urban Reclaim Spaces and The Yes Men.

.::OPEN PROJECTS::.

Yule log4j Burning

:..>No one can be…told what the Yule log4j Burning is…you have to see it for yourself…

Sirocyl’s Mini-Vintage Computer Festival

:..> After an impromptu vintage computer meetup left sirocyl stuck with a trunkful of x86mas cheer, we’ll be bringing over some small items to demo and screw around with.

TryHackMe Advent Of Cyber

:..>Advent of Cyber is an event that gets people started in cyber security, by releasing beginner friendly security exercises every day leading up to Christmas. For 25 days they release tasks breaking down common security topics into byte-sized walk-throughs and challenges. Each task is self contained and includes the basic information required to start working on a security challenge including supporting material and a video tutorial. At the end of the competition, we’ll enter every participant who completed a question into a raffle to win the prizes. Every question a user completes, gives a higher chance of winning!

:..>What To Bring: Any laptop will do. We do not think you need anymore than that but if you are looking for OS/VM’s with preloaded tools; look at Kali Linux, Parrot OS, Pentoo or Black Arch for ideas! You need to sign up with TryHackMe (with more details) at the link below:

DCG 201 Vote: What IRC Instance Should We Move To?

:..> If you have been living under a rock lately, we regret to inform you that Freenode imploded under it’s own arrogance and stupidity leading to a mass exodus of IRC Channels. Since we use to host under Freenode, we plan on moving the #DEFCON201 IRC Channel to another IRC Server. We your help in us voting in a new one. The options are:

>LiberaChat
>
HackInt
>
OFTC

We want to hear your opinions in person and you can help online by voting on our active poll on our Twitch Channel!

hxp CTF 2021

:..>This Friday, starting on December 17th at 10:00 AM EST, we invite all DCG 201 Members, Attendees and Fans to help us hack the hxp CTF 2021! If you are new to Online CTF, we will help you get set up and walk you through some of the challenges. Then you can log in anytime after until December 19th 10:00 AM EST to continue our CTF conquest! To learn more about the CTF, please follow this link:

DCG 201 Online CTF — hxp CTF 2021 | Meetup
Welcome to the hxp CTF 2021! For over two years we have been planing running our own Wargames and CTF to help people…www.meetup.com

:..>What To Bring: Any laptop will do. Ideally you want to load it full of Information Security Red Team and Blue Team tools, look at Kali Linux, Parrot OS, Pentoo or Black Arch for ideas. To participate online, you will need a Discord Account and to join our Discord at this link: https://discord.gg/PGgPNEF

Nintendo VR Blaster Build & Play

:..>We have a new cardboard engineering construction for anyone of any skill level to try out. Combine DIY fun with simple, shareable VR, plus a new programming tool you can use to make your own quick play VR games and experiences! When finished, we will take turns blasting through an alien invasion, test your skills at competitive hippo feeding, and go wherever else our imagination takes us! NOTE: Guests will be required to follow social distancing measures including the wearing on non-latex gloves and wearing masks.

:..>What To Bring: The ability to follow instructions and fold paper. The play portion needs two working eyes with depth perception and a resistance to motion sickness.

Practicing Lockpicking & Locksport

:..>DEFCON 201 will have padlocks and professional practice tumblers provided by TOOOL to practice on. Fun and easy to learn for all ages and backgrounds with two expert instructors! We will also have sanitation and social distancing rules in place due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.

:..>What To Bring: All lockpicking tools and practice locks will be provided. You are free to bring any lock you own that you DON’T RELY ON or any lockpicking tools and bypasses to the space. If you decide to bring something, we have a manditory sanitation on site of the tool/lock you bring before it’s allowed to be interacted with.
