Hands-on JTAG for Fun and Root Shells
Rocking the World of Open Source Webapps with Sandstorm.io
Thu – 3pm – Free: When it comes to innovation, open source is a force of nature, and the web is a universal platform for delivering some killer tech. But centralized, if not proprietary, tech still dominates the web. Sandstorm.io is going to change things. They have a rock-solid platform to host and administer OS apps that is perfectly accessible for the average user. It has it's own App Market. Lets port some apps, and keep the sweet, entropic internet open, decentralized, and awesome.
Spy Game: Red Teaming in the Real World
PCB Prototyping – Silver, Inkjet, Surface Mount Circuits
Thu – 5PM – Free
Making Electrons Flow: Conductive Ink Circuit Hacking
Sat – 4PM – Free: Learn about electronics and how electrons flow by drawing circuits with a silver ink conductive pen and modules! With the support of CircuitScribe and their educator kit, we will explore how transistors, resistors, capacitors, potentiometers and other devices work, and make live circuits using nothing more than paper, ink, and their magnetic modules. Everyone at ToorCamp is getting a teaser kit! Come and join in the fun, and expand your electronic horizons. We will also go over how it can be used in a more practical application for circuit prototyping, and even making single and double-sided circuit boards that work — on PAPER.
Take Back Your Email and Bring It Home
Giri Sreenivas and Dirk Sigurdson
Thu – 1pm – Optional Cost: The Internet has gotten away from its roots of decentralized data and services with the rise of service providers like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft. This has had disastrous consequences for the privacy and security of individuals. Email is a prime example of this and individuals have found their privacy compromised as victims of various forms of corporate and government surveillance. In this workshop, you will create a fully functioning mail server based on open source software that you can run at home, overcoming typical ISP restrictions blocking SMTP. By leveraging an open source automated deployment and configuration management framework, your Raspberry Pi 3 will have postfix, dovecot, rspamd, openldap, Darwin contacts and calendar server along with other open source components deployed. The default server configuration minimizes attack surface, utilizes secure protocols and widely accepted ciphers, and gets TLS certificates from the Lets Encrypt CA. Your favorite email, calendaring and contacts management apps for desktop/mobile will work seamlessly with this server using IMAP, caldav and carddav. The server will be coupled with a ssh gateway running on a cloud-based service to overcome ISP restrictions on SMTP access. The cost is optional, Pi3 kits will be available for purchase for $65 plus domain registration costs. Attendees are welcome to bring their own pi3 and/or domain.
VR Sharks in Space
Thu – 12PM – $10: VR, like the web should be for everyone with the grit to try- I intend to continue running workshops and advocate for the development of webVR by underfunded content creators, by this I mean barrier-less entry to VR through the web and totally accessible by the average citizen, as an open alternative to the closed systems currently being provided by large providers like Steam or Facebook (not that their products are wrong for doing so). Like all new technologies there are skeptics and true believers, spectacular hype and cynicism, but regardless all have conceived their own vision of what a virtual web could look like and what it means for the virtual society at large. I do not believe in failure on the web, because to fail does not equal a quantitative lack of users or profit, but rather to never have existed as an ambition of humanity. To my amusement it is beginning to resemble something like the beginnings of digital 3D in the early 90's and web 1.0. and I am excited to be a catalyst in its evolution!
The Woodgas Workshop
Thu-Fri-Sat 9AM – Free: This will be a fairly big project to build and test a wood gas generator. People will be welcome to come and go as the project goes along.
Meditation for Hackers: Breaking Out of Your Mind's Jail
Fri – 12PM – Donations: How do you get root on your own brain? Evolution, your culture, and your upbringing have put you in a privilege-isolated jail on a system that's running all sorts of useless, annoying malware. In this workshop, you’ll learn some basic mindfulness tools to help you break out of this jail, clean up the malware, and install some helpful daemons and cron jobs instead. This workshop will focus on practice techniques you can bring to your own life. We’ll spend a little time on theory and background, but most of the content will be actual practice. If you’re already familiar with meditation, this will be a mini-retreat. If you’re new to it, just come along and get a taste of what this is about.
Everything you need to know about 3D printing in 75 minutes
chris lopez / machinist
Fri – 4PM – Free: More and more you hear about 3D printing in the news, and from our peers. More and more of us are getting hands on experience with the machines, and the experiences seem to be universally frustrating. 3D printers require extensive domain knowledge in not only the hardware of the machine, but the firmware behind it, as well as dozens of flavors of CAD to create and manipulate printable designs. We'd like to give you a comprehensive overview of our experiences with the machines, how to get printing with as little headache as possible, and how to take your next prints to a higher level. Beyond the printer itself, there's the matter of making shapes for the 3D printer, either through design or scanning. We'll take a tour through a few methods to do such things, including modern computational wizardry of "Photogrammetry" and "LIDAR" By the end of listening to this talk, you'll be better armed to make better 3D prints.
Hacking .NET/C# Applications: Hands on Black Arts
Campground Data Hackathon
J Sev Leonard
Sat – 2:30PM – Free: Choose your own camping adventure with the campnear.me API! Come play with a database of 3,000 Pacific Northwest campgrounds, built on data from Federal, state, and local sources. Build an app, help debug duplicates, meet other folks interested in data hacking. No data hacking experience? No problem. Check out Jupyter notebooks from Sev's (very) recent tutorial at PyCon to learn the basics of data hacking in Python at at https://github.com/gizm00/pycon2016 and the accompanying Docker repo at https://hub.docker.com/r/gizm00/pycon2016/ – Please check these repos after June 1 for the final versions Sev Leonard is a technologist, outdoorsman, campnear.me creator, and former analog circuit designer. He runs a data science & software consulting business The Data Scout. Sev enjoys working on fun tech projects, freshly cut grass, and soft domesticated mammals.
There's many great workshops going on at ToorCamp this year, but most have limited attendance. To reserve your spot in a workshop, make sure to register for it ahead of time! Most workshops are free but some require a fee to help cover materials so make sure to paypal your instructor with the fee to confirm your reservation. For workshops that don't sell out we'll also be processing sign-ups at the info desk at the camp, but it's highly encouraged to sign up ahead of time.
