info session for Batman's Kitchen: Computer Security

We are Batman’s Kitchen, the UW competition team, and we are looking for new members!

Interested in learning about computer security issues and/or being part of a competition team?  We hold regular meetings, practice breaking/hacking stuff, learn about the latest security topics, and compete in CTF
competitions throughout the year.  You don't need any prior experience to join the team -- all you need is an interest in security and/or CTFs plus a willingness to learn.  Our group is an interdisciplinary group of students from CSE, EE, iSchool, pre-engineering, and other UW departments.  We collaborate with the other two UW branches (Tacoma and Bothell) and organizations/companies in the Seattle area.

Our Info Meeting is next Tuesday, October 6th, CSE building rm691, at 6:00pm.  We welcome everyone.  At the Info Meeting we'll talk about the topics we'll cover in the coming year (e.g., lockpicking, IoT, privacy, etc.), the type of competitions we do, hands-on labs, local hacker groups, and Puget Sound resources.

Even if you can't make it to the meeting, sign up for our mailing list at, check out our website at, or drop by the Societies Fair on October 8th at 3:30-6p in Maple Hall to talk with some of our members.  If you have any questions, email me and I can tell you more.
