Edmonds Community College will host its second annual Technology Exposition on Saturday, April 2. Tickets are free but reservations are recommended.
The free event will feature Washington state’s Technology Syndicate — a group of technology experts and educators who have prepared a series of one-hour activities geared toward individuals at all skill levels.
Activities will include hands-on labs that cover Web application development, computer forensics, capturing network traffic, designing computer networks, using virtual machines and diagnosing hard drive problems.
“There are many technological advances we hear about on a daily basis but never have the opportunity to see in action or learn more about,” Steve Hailey, Edmonds CC Information Security and Digital Forensics Instructor, said. “For example, we hear stories all the time about hackers cracking passwords. We’ll be showing how this is done and how to protect yourself from this type of attack.”
Attendees can choose to participate in the hands-on activities or just observe.
“This is a great opportunity to learn about many different areas of technology,” Hailey said. “There will be something for everyone at this event, from the computer novice to the information technology professional.”
