Part movie night, part cybersecurity workshop, join the Tech Learning Collective's cybersecurity trainers as they take you on a guided tour of Hollywood's most memorable, fantastical, & even kind of realistic hacking scenes to ever grace the silver screen. From WarGames (1983), to Hackers (1995), to The Matrix Reloaded (2003), & many more, revisit all your favorite hacker movie moments augmented with edutaining commentary from a peanut gallery of cybersecurity instructors!
We'll watch a clip from the movie, then critique it from a technopolitical perspective. In the process, you'll be exposed to some indinspensible computer security tools (like nmap!), learn about hacking exploits of yesteryear, & ultimately gain a better sense of how to separate fiction from reality in contemporary hacking dramas in pop culture.

About the Tech Learning Collective
The Tech Learning Collective is an educational initiative run by radical queer & femme technologists offering unparalleled, low-cost computer classes primarily to marginalized groups & individuals who are politically engaged. Unlike coding bootcamps that focus on moving the highest number of students through rote task-completion for the goal of job placement, Tech Learning Collective teachers facilitate foundational skill building through Socratic discussion & kinetic, experience-based training.
