Somerville Cryptoparty this Thursday

Halley Murray, our new PR/Media Director, has been running cryptoparties at Parts & Crafts in Somerville for the last two months.

She will run another on Thursday, May 21st from 6-9pm. Parts & Crafts is at 577 Somerville Ave, Somerville. The closest MBTA is the 87 Bus, or a walk from Porter Sq/Red Line.

Unfortunately the space is not wheelchair accessible this evening, due to other events in the building. They will be meeting downstairs in the basement.

Parts and Crafts is a makerspace and community workshop in Somerville. On this night, the usually kid-filled space is inviting grown-ups to come participate here.  All grown-ups who use the space should keep this in mind and respect the kid-friendly environment.

If you want to prepare before coming, you can find some encryption how-to guides here:
