Maine DEF CON DC207
DC207 is the official Maine DEF CON group.
DEF CON is one of the oldest continuous running hacker conventions in the world and also one of the largest, held annually in Las Vegas.
The group was founded by current students and alumni of the University of Southern Maine after we realized that there were no groups whose focus was on Computer Security and the community here in Portland.
Our goal is to teach, learn, party and raise awareness in our local community of topics related to Computer and Physical security and not just for large corporations.Meeting Information
Our meetings are generally on the 1st and/or 3rd Wednesday of the month.
We generally do presentations once a month that are hosted by a local business and usually includes drinks and food. We focus on quality which affects our presentation schedule.
Our other recurring event is our HackME Social which is on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. The HackME social is a very casual get together that can take many forms. We generally meet up at Novare Res Bier Cafe in Portland.
