EVENT DETAILS
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.

$45 - General admissions suggested donation

$30 - Suggested donation for queer-identified & femme people

Event space is limited to 25 participants! Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early to reserve your seat & make your donation, or make your donation now & get your reservation ticket online. If the suggested rate is cost-prohibitive, we encourage attendees to pay whatever is comfortable for them. For accommodations, please email us at techlearningcollective@riseup.net.

As with all Tech Learning Collective events, racism, queerphobia, transphobia, sexism, brogrammer, manarchist, or any kind of similarly awful behavior will result in immediate removal from class without a refund. Please refer to our lightweight social rules for details on our strictly enforced no-tolerance policy against bigotry of any kind.
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.
