This is the third of a series of classes. If you did not attend the first, you are welcome to come, but please be aware that you will need to catch up.


Ever wonder how your HTTP requests get from one place to another? Ever tried to debug a misbehaving WiFi network and given up in frustration? Ever tried to find sample code and gotten lost in C headers?

Dive into the details with an introduction to networking course, taught from the ground up in Python, exploring raw sockets, protocols, framing mechanisms and more. Please come ready to pledge to use the tools that you're about to learn for good!

This class will be held in the Digital Commons at the library, and occurs immediately after the Python Lab.

For anyone who wants to get set up in advance:

 - Create a live USB or virtual machine of Kali Linux (e.g. using VirtualBox) which will have all the necessary tools preinstalled, OR


 - Install Wireshark, the `scapy` Python module, and if using Windows, netsh.
