    "More Python for Hackers" Workshop by Jason Gillam from SecureIdeas
    Friday June 26th 6:00pm - 9:00pm
    Eventbrite - BSides Asheville - More Python for Hackers Workshop

    This workshop is a follow-up from last year's "Python for Hackers" class. We will be reviewing fundamentals and then jumping into some hands-on labs to build Python scripts applicable to realistic penetration testing scenarios. Topics will include: processing files of arbitrary sizes, network sockets, parsing (text, JSON & XML), and HTTP.

    Although we will be starting with a review of basic Python coding, some previous exposure to Python (such as last year's 3-hour class) is recommended. Students must bring their own laptops. The workshop requires Python 2.7.9 and a Python IDE (such as PyCharm). A virtual machine with all labs and any necessary Python libraries will be provided.
