WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

The Perils of Writing Insecure Code
[PRESENTED BY AUDREY DUTCHER, UCSB SECLAB]

Everyone knows that "cybersecurity" is a big deal - but are you giving due diligence to your code's security? In this workshop, we'll go over several common critical errors you can make while writing webapps and talk about the ways that they can compromise your security.

 

Erm, talk about? Actually, we'll be showing you how to hack into them! The best way to know how to be secure is to know the consequences firsthand, so you'll be learning exactly how to perform several common attacks against websites. We'll go over injection attacks, deserialization attacks, cryptography best practices, and more! Bring a laptop to do it yourself or just show up to watch!

Intro to iOS
[PRESENTED BY SCOTT CHOW]

This workshop will teach you the basics of iOS and mobile app development. Newcomers and beginners are welcome!

Machine Learning Made Easy
[PRESENTED BY EMMA GAU, MATHWORKS]

In this session we explore the fundamentals of machine learning using MATLAB. Through several examples we review typical workflows for both supervised learning (classification) and unsupervised learning (clustering).

Navigating a Tech Career as a Woman
[PRESENTED BY CAITLIN DAVIS, INVOCA]

I'll describe my (sometimes bumpy) journey from Computer Science student to Director of Engineering, highlight some lessons learned along the way, and lead a discussion to brainstorm ways we can help all women succeed in tech.

A Short Introduction to Post-Quantum Cryptography
[PRESENTED BY NAT BUNNER]

The security of most cryptographic schemes rely on hard problems in number theory that are easily solvable with quantum computers. We'll look at quantum-resistant alternatives based on the PLWE assumption and the new possibilities it allows (notably computation on encrypted data).

Introduction to Unity
[PRESENTED BY ALEXIS URBAIN-RACINE, UCSB GAME DEV CLUB]

A guide to the basics of the Unity game engine, and a small primer on how to start building your first game!

Intro to Web Development + Web Development (intermediate) and GCP
