Personally, I believe in surrounding myself with people who do something good and/or are experts in what they do and/or are just good human beings. This way, the bar I set for myself with what I do and how I do it, is gradually coming up. And that’s what happened last Friday.

For the second time in a row, I was asked to do a workshop at ColorInTech’s event - ColorCode. For those who doesn’t know what that is - ColorInTech is a nonprofit that tries to make the tech industry more diverse and inclusive (which is a thing that I agree with more than anything). ColorCode is one of their programs, which is basically a day (or two) of workshops, presentations and awesome things aimed at the young professionals to show them what’s available for them in tech.

This year, I came up with an idea to do a Hack-Into-Something-kinda workshop. So, we hacked our way into hackthebox (which is an amazing service, check it out!) - we literally hacked our way, because the whole trick with htb is to get an access code in order to hack more things. And we also DDOS’ed the service for a second…

Without getting into too much details, I have to say, it was one of the nicest events I had an honour to be a part of - big High-5 to Ashleigh, Millie and Dion for making the event so smooth, H5’s to every and each volunteer, who helped with the event; H5’s to Google, Facebook and EA Games for having amazign stands with amazing tech. And most important - BIG HIGH-FIVES to all students for willing to learn a new thing and maybe, just maybe, finding their way in the tech world.

If you want to go through the workshop yourself - go here

See you @ ColorCode20!
