This workshop is an opportunity to learn from the knowledge and experience of one of New Zealand’s most experienced design strategists.
Dorenda has been a leading exponent of design thinking in the New Zealand context for over ten years and she has a wealth of experience to share on the role and importance of this approach to add value to our businesses and institutions. Her talk will focus on the role of design to create authentic value in the products and services you offer.
More recently she has established the Britten Institute to support the use and adoption of these methods in solving the challenges facing our society and organisations.
She will share her unique perspective and a simple framework for you to take back to your organisation and use to evaluate your current products and services.
This event has a limited number of free tickets available to the genuine members of the Design Thinking Meetup Group so please act quickly to secure a seat by RSVP'ing and emailing Dorenda directly on email@example.com
After last month's event, we feel it's appropriate to run another Hacking Lab. This time we'll have working wireless network gear, a proper switch, and some power on the tables. We also have the room booked upstairs.
We'll have some vulnerable-on-purpose machines available on a local network (wireless & wired) for you to have a poke at. We'll walk you through one of these on the big screen, and be around to give help/pointers as needed throughout the evening.
Bring along a laptop with either WiFi, or an Ethernet socket & cable to plug into the network. A lot of the time you won't need any special tools, but you may like to download a copy of Kali Linux from kali.org (https://www.kali.org/downloads/) to live boot, or a virtual machine from offensive-security.com (https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-linux-vmware-virtualbox-image-download/). This comes with a large number of tools which may come in handy for some challenges.
We'll also have a lock picking station for those interested in or who would like to try out some lock sport. We have picks, locks, and people to give help / guidance / teach you how to use the tools properly.
This is an open-format educational session. There are no requirements for prior "elite hacker skills". Come along, learn a few tricks, and have some fun.
Our meetups are always first Tuesday of a month at the Catalyst IT office above Pomeroys Pub.
We usually have a talk about anything that relates to Python programming language. Some months we run team coding challenges (aka "dojos"). These will be announced beforehand.
If you have a question about Python on or are stuck with some Python project, feel free to bring it up at the meetup. There will be people around who will be happy to help.
Doors open at 5:30pm, talk starts at 6pm.
At the start and end of the meetup, an informal conversation takes place, usually over a pint of beer.
Do not hesitate to pass this information around to whomever you think may be interested to hear and discuss all things Python.
