DEF CON 864, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance (not EFF), will host this event:

DEF CON 864: MUDdy Lessons

From the Organizers:

In "MUDdy Lessons," Kal takes the audience on a journey through his 20-year experience with Multi-User Dungeons (MUDs), highlighting their role in developing his IT skills. He delves into the intricacies of learning C programming since 2020, a skill cultivated through his work on MUDs, particularly on the project "BlackMUD: Age of Discovery." Kal discusses how MUDs fostered not only his programming abilities but also skills in game design, solution engineering, and community management. The presentation includes a case study on the challenges and innovations in updating "BlackMUD," emphasizing practical problem-solving. The talk concludes with a Q&A session, offering insights into how hobbies and passions can enhance professional growth in the IT field.

Kal is a co-founder of DEF CON 864 and one of its current leads. He loves finding ways to hack old tech in with the new and spending quality conversational time with family and friends. Occasionally those folks enjoy talking to him too.

We leave an hour to going over member projects and interests. Have a Raspberry Pi project or build a custom drone? Bring it in and show us how you did it. Creating your own set of scripts for system reconnaissance? We'd love to see it.
