SUMMER

It's summer time for the college. for some of you, that means no class or studying. For the rest of us . use the time for improving skill and take extra class or two to finish our degrees. I recommend you seek out knowledge , Find those Flags,  lock down your box and laugh at the challenges coming up this fall for the cyber Security Club. I'll be working on some events and finding some good resources for the club.    Hack responsibly,   Javier Flores (Javi)
