Next Irvine Underground Meeting
14.MAY.2021 at IHOP

Smells Like Chicken!

Wait no… you’re holding it wrong.

This months IVU meetup (June 2017) we will be spending time soldering the DEFCON Jack! Currently being sold on the DEFCON Communications store (here). Pick up yours before the meeting if you can.

We will have a few soldering kits available and a few extra DEFCON Jack kits for a few lucky folks. Come join us and help the noobs hold the soldering iron right or come learn how to hold the soldering iron right by listening to the not so nooby people!

Here’s a sample of the before and after from Israel.

All skill levels welcome.

If you have any questions come find us and ask!

2017 – May Minutes

Make IVU great again!

It’s been awhile since we followed up with our meetings and had presentations. Well, we’re going to try our best to get things going for IVU, thus we want to MIGA – Make IVU Great Again! We are working on getting more presenters of all levels and getting more workshops going at our meetups.

We had a small group for a pre-IVU meet up at Gulliver’s for some cigars, scotch, whiskey, and beer at Gulliver’s. Fun and relaxation were had by all who attended.

The IVU meet up was busier than has been in a while with around 20 people or so. Maybe it’s a May thing; maybe it’s amazing. Penguino came and had a great presentation on Bitcoin. The presentation covered the general overview of bitcoin transactions, different bitcoin wallet providers, and even generated a side discussion of bitcoin and economics.

The lock pick board was brought out, but mysteriously floated away for another presentation elsewhere. We also discussed next month’s meet up in which we will take a stab at soldering a DEFCON Jack (available on Ebay at the DEFCON Store).
