Upcoming Class: CryptoParty

Dallas Makerspace will be holding a CryptoParty on February 20th at 7pm, running until about 9pm.

CryptoParty is a decentralized, global initiative to introduce basic cryptography tools – such as the Tor anonymity network, public key encryption (PGP/GPG), and OTR (Off The Record messaging) – to the general public.

The topic of the CryptoParty being held on the 20th will be: “Encrypting emails with GPG”

The class will be about 2 hours long, and the instructor will stay as late as necessary to answer questions/assist with issues. First hour is an overview and general lecture, with the second hour as the technical segment/hands on.

Everyone is encouraged to bring their laptops.

Copies of software will be available on CD/USB drive if people are unable or unwilling to connect to the internet.

    I am just a computer hobbyist. I want to improve my skills. Is this 2 hour class available to anyone or do you have to be a member. could I get a pass just to see what the place looks like and a feel for it’s members. I don’t know anything about 3D printing. I am awfully interested in becoming a Linux geek. This class looks like something that would give me a feel for what type of instruction is going on at the maker space.
