We have form the DC415 group is 415 just because is the main city area code, but all bay area residents are invited to join.
We meet in noisebridge now we meet online in the matrix descentralized federated network, see bellow for more info.
We meet two times a month, second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 PM/19:00 hours until you have to go or they kick us out.
For official events check:

our latest Defcon25 video with HackBloc, Hispagatos and DC415 collectives https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYpoMjCzu88 Thanks to the Hispanic hacker show "Hackerñol"

We are finally listed as an official DefCon Group for the 415 area code[edit]

Unfortunately we have to email again to update the info they have.... lol


we are not having meetups at this moment, please join us on matrix or #hispagatos in the i2p darknet. for how to join our matrix federated chat room visit https://hispagatos.org/blog/2017-06-26-hispagatos-federated-matrix-chat-node-howto/

Everyone is welcome but know our topics are focus on hacking,hacker ethics, anarchism, cypher/cyber-punk, politics etc in the true hacker spirit. This overlaps with infosec but we are a hacker group not a infosec group.. this means we do speak our minds and talk progressive politics and are focus on hacktivists and fixing the world we live on by the means of technology and digital/electrical means.

We are a DefCon group but we are not limited to defcon, we participate in 2600/HOPE/CCC and Bsides conferences as well, you may see us on infosec conferences like RSA but is not in our interests to support commercial and corporate conferences, this is one of the reasons we meet at NoiseBridge instead of some capitalist corporate office...
