About DC401

DC401 is the local Defcon Group for Rhode Island. DC401 is a gathering for folks interested in the alternate applications of modern technology, referred to properly as 'hacking'. DC401 is not intended to compete with any other computer group, such as Providence Geeks, 2600 or Linux User Groups, but rather to provide yet another gathering place for the discussion of technology and security topics. DC401 meetings are open to anyone, regardless of their skill, age, job, gender, etc. DC401 is here to help you learn new things, meet new people, mentor others in areas you may be strong in, and provide some cohesion within the hacker culture and it's members.


DC401 meets on the first wednesday of each month at AS220 Labs in Providence from 1830-2100. Presentations will start around 1900. Once we're done with presentations, we'll discuss current projects in a Hacker-safe atmosphere.
