Hi there!

I've just recently moved to Ottawa from the GTA and was ecstatic to see
there's a local space with some active members.

I'm a Programmer/Computer Scientist up here to start my MSc at
Carleton's Computer Security Lab in the fall. I just finished my BSc in
Computer Science at Brock University, and previously graduated from
Sheridan college's Computer Science diploma program (I'm a bit of a
one-trick pony!).

My interests are pretty varied. Lots of experience with
programming/software. Strong hobby interest in InfoSec. I gave a talk at
The Next Hope last summer, and have spent some time with the lovely
folks at the Toronto Hacklab playing in the UCSB iCTF last Dec. Over the
past few days I've been dabbling with OpenCV. I've manage to throw
together a prototype pigeon tracking system for my balcony. It's fairly
ridiculous... I'm keen to learn about/work on basically anything that
manages to pique my interest.

For short term goals I'm really interested in learning some basic
electronics and experimenting with the Arduino platform. When I was at
HOPE last year I picked up an Adafruit "game of life" kit that's been
collecting dust next to a brand new soldering iron on my shelf. A crash
course in soldering would be a great place to start! If nothing else
it'd be nice to meet some techies in the area.

Is the meeting tomorrow night taking place as expected? 7 to 9pm at the
ArtEngine building?
