Unconference II


This past weekend, Saturday September 17, Hacksburg hosted our second Hacker Unconference.

What was it? A bunch of people interested in technology who got together to talk about whatever things they were passionate about.

We ended up with the following schedule:

  • How the Internet works - really
  • Attach in Depth - new cyber methods as seen in russia's sucessful attack on power infrastructure
  • All te drones! (Racing, AP, lon range FPV, build, design)
  • Hacking Power Meters

If any speakers want to let us know links to projects discussed or further materials we would be glad to link them.

Thank you to all the attendees and our sponors.
