CHCH.JS: Social + show & tell

We need to line up some talks for 2018!
Come along for a drink and chat about what you've been working on, what you're interested in hearing about, and if you have anything to share then bring a laptop.

Give us a quick 2 minute demo of your app/game/website/tool that you made or use. Doesn't have to be much but it sparks conversation and someone might have some insight to a problem you're facing. Bring your laptop to share something.

Information Security Interest Group - Christchurch, NZ: January Event - Hacking Lab

Welcome back from your Christmas / New Year / summer shenanigans / break.

We're starting the ISIG year off with a hacking lab. This means that we'll have some vulnerable-on-purpose machines available on a local network (wireless & wired) for you to have a poke at. We'll walk you through one of these on the big screen, and be around to give help/pointers as needed throughout the evening.

Bring along a laptop with either WiFi, or an Ethernet socket & cable to plug into the network. A lot of the time you won't need any special tools, but you may like to download a copy of Kali Linux from kali.org to live boot, or a virtual machine from offensive-security.com. This comes with a large number of tools which may come in handy for some challenges.

We'll also have a lock picking station for those interested in or who would like to try out some lock sport. We have picks, locks, and people to give help / guidance / teach you how to use the tools properly.

This is an open-format educational session. There are no requirements for prior "elite hacker skills". Come along, learn a few tricks, and have some fun.

New Zealand Python User Group - Christchurch: Christchurch Python Meetup

Note that as of March 2017, the meeting day has changed!

Our meetups are always first Tuesday of a month at the Catalyst IT office above Pomeroys Pub.

We usually have a talk about anything that relates to Python programming language. Some months we run team coding challenges (aka "dojos"). These will be announced beforehand.

If you have a question about Python on or are stuck with some Python project, feel free to bring it up at the meetup. There will be people around who will be happy to help.

Doors open at 5:30pm, talk starts at 6pm.

At the start and end of the meetup, an informal conversation takes place, usually over a pint of beer.

Do not hesitate to pass this information around to whomever you think may be interested to hear and discuss all things Python.

PS: NZPUG's Code of Conduct applies for our local meetups and the online meetup.com group. Please read it up in case you haven't yet https://nzpug.org/code-of-conduct/
