ChickTech: Seattle
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This hands-on workshop with ChickTech and Patrick McCanna, Security Architect at AT&T Mobility, will explore different ways you can protect your online security, as well as how networked computers communicate with one another and how systems can become compromised. We will learn about DNS (Domain Name System), IP addressing, Unix concepts like network servers and shells. These are all critical components that help you learn the larger theme of computer and network security. You’ll learn all this by hacking into a web server.

10:00 - 10:30 am Breakfast
10:30 - 1:00 pm Lab Begins
1:00 - 2:00 pm Lunch & Group Activities

Movie Night - The Simulation Hypothesis
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Is everything an illusory simulation? Was the world created by a non-physical force that we can communicate with and possibly influence with our minds, thereby participating in the creation of our own reality? These are the grandiose existential questions central to this documentary, which introduces viewers to the concept of the Simulation Hypothesis.

The Simulation Hypothesis, which the filmmakers parallel very heavily against the hit sci-fi movie The Matrix, argues that matter and ideas are the result of a complex digital simulation, something akin to a video game. Theoretical physicists make their case for a programmable universe, positing that there is evidence of computer code to be found in nature and we are, put simply, expressions of a code.
