Some of the featured talks this year.. (with a few more to come)

Cloudless Home Automation in a Cloudy World
Gaslighting: Manipulating Reality

Website creation that fast, beautiful, simple and .. secure??

Come hear Dennis Stepp’s talk: “Let’s Get JAMming: An introduction to static site generators”.  “In under an hour you can build your blog, project documentation, or even a very basic eCommerce site. ”  The talk will be accompanied by several demonstrations. Even if you don’t make sites yourself, the next time you get that dreaded “You know about computers! – How should I build a website?”  Then you will know. (.. and knowing is half the battle 😉 )

Reverse engineering… your truck?

Say you had a computer controlled diesel truck. Say you wanted to figure out just what that computer controlled… without documentation

Come to PhreakNIC and meet Swamp. A local enthusiast and tinker who just couldn’t stop until he had reverse engineered the circuit boards and various control modules of his truck. Before long, people were coming to him for help.. Come hear about his discoveries as someone who understands the reverse engineering process; the long and painful journey it takes to understand just what goes on in the circuit boards of a vehicle.
