by Tyler Reed
This month's talk will be by Tyler Reed. He leads a team developing an open source platform for automating hydroponics, built around Raspberry Pi and Arduino. The platform features auto-discovery using Avahi and asynchronous communications with MQTT. Sensor modules use the new Pi Zero's GPIO and camera port. All wireless, of course. He'll have lots of cool toys to demo and share, so come check it out!
To fill up the remainder of the time, Erin will also be hosting a "Beginner's Corner" with introductory demonstrations of Arduinos and Raspberry Pis for anyone just getting started. Message her if you're interested in seeing a particular topic for this, otherwise it will just be a general "getting started".
There is a technical mailing list for technical discussions. It is separate from the meetup mailing list. To get good answers, consider following the advice in the links below.

"SafeCracking on a Budget" - by David Hunt and Zack Nagaich
Talk Description: We had a problem: no combination to a safe. The solution was to build our own automatic safe dialer. We will review the steps we followed, Information gathered, Vulnerability Analysis, Exploitation, Post-Exploitation, and Reporting. (PTES Technical Guidelines style). Along the way we will share knowledge learned and stories of success and failure. David Hunt has worked in software development for several years. Switched to focus on application security, vulnerability and penetration testing. Recently picked up the bug for safe cracking. Zack Nagaich is a Recent Ohio State computer science graduate working in cyber security for a variety of companies in the central Ohio area with a passion for software and security.
A Raspberry Pi can be used for a lot of things. Eric used one to take a picture of the sky every 10 seconds for three years. In this presentation, Eric will talk about how he did it, the pitfalls and problems encountered along the way, and how to manage over 6 terabytes of pictures.
Jon Bennett will give a presentation on how he used an Arduino and GPS receiver to automate his chicken coop, opening and closing the door to protect them from predators and turning on a light to increase egg production.
