BoT In January ’22

Greetings to all you wonderful people! 🙂

 

After a short holiday (I can hear some saying…..”what is that? Thanks “insert current v of Log4J here”) hiatus, we are back….again! 😀

We made it once more, we continued to push through 2021 with all the existing and new challenges, and have once more turned a corner into 2022. This does not mean the end however, as we can clearly see from what is still going on around us…

With this in mind, we are unfortunately once more not in a safe time to start exploring physical meetup options at the moment, which is why we are continuing to offer our premium online meetup experience over at the BoT Discord server.

We have some wonderfully dedicated community members ensuring fun and eventful times are had when you are able to join us, from your latest work from home hax to fighting over music playlists and even gaming sessions to cry over how you STILL can’t get your hands on a new 3090…

 

This means all BoT meetups & regular interactions/chats will be continued across our available virtual environments, on both our Slack ChannelDiscord Server.

 

Until further notice, all monthly meetups will be held online on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.

ALL Locations: Tuesday 11th January – Online – From 18:30Discord Server

****************************

Of course, as we continue to watch carefully how things progress, we will keep you in the loop of new opportunities and new creative events to keep our community buzzing.

 

As always, we are available for you over our many communication channels (email, slack, twitter, etc..), feel free to reach out directly at any time.

Once more, we whole-heartedly thank you for your understanding and continued support in these tough times, and journeying through together only makes it that little bit much easier…

Happy New Year!~-~ Minecraft Skin

Continue to stay safe, stay healthy, look after each other! Happy New Year! 😀

Your DEFCON [SAFE MODE] Switzerland Team 🙂

A further heads up! We have the 3rd iteration of our Defcon Dojo happening this month. We feel these events are gaining good traction and providing useful opportunities for people to get hands on experience with topics and technologies not normally otherwise encountered. This month we have the honor of having our very own El President, Adrian,  will be bringing all the goodies surrounding the Teensy project (https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/). The usual side of lock picking and mini drone flying plus more also 🙂
