~## 2016 Hak4Kidz Chicago Keynote
Austin Valleskey is not your typical high school Junior. At age 10 Austin was designing and developing stunning websites. By 15, Austin made an iPhone app called “Impossible Rush” that raced up the top charts and was downloaded more than 1,000,000 times within a few months. The game Austin coded in an afternoon peaked at 16th on the U.S. iTunes charts, beating apps like Netflix, Twitter, Tinder, Skype, and Spotify. Austin has been featured on Forbes, Business Insider, Huffington Post, NBC, and WGN, to name a few. He is a sought after speaker with engagements in the U.S., Europe, and Israel. His work and connections have brought him to Google, Facebook, Apple, WeWork, and various start-up tech companies. Recently, he spent his summer working in San Francisco for gifs.com as their Head of Design. His expertise helped boost daily visitors from 100,000 to nearly 1,000,000 a day.

~# Web Hacking Exposed: The Threat AwakensRegistration
Ever wonder what Boba Fett and professional ethical hackers have in common? Both are bounty hunters! That’s right; ethical hackers can be bounty hunters too! Companies with websites hire ethical hackers to test for vulnerabilities. This method is called “crowdsourcing” where there are rewards out for finding bugs on their own web applications.
When the researchers (aka ethical hacker) attack the web application and find a genuine bug before anyone else, they get paid a bounty! Just like Boba Fett when he brought Han Solo to Jabba the Hut. How cool is that? During this workshop no one will be frozen in carbonite.
In this workshop, experienced penetration ("pen") tester Mike Jones will introduce you to the realm of web application security and the use of tools such as Burp Suite web proxy, and SQLmap plugins. Tyros will learn about reconnaisance of a web application, use of spidering/web crawling using a pre-built testing web application. Tyros will also be exposed to some of the different types of vulnerability classes such as XSS(Cross-site Scripting), SQL Injection, Forced Browsing and Open Redirection. Through the lab session Tyros will be taught a methodology for assessing, discovering, attacking, and exploitation of a test web applications. Tyros will also learn about the practice of Responsible Disclosure when vulnerabilities are discovered in public websites/web applications.
This workshop's expected runtime is 3 hours and will be scheduled in two parts, one in the morning, and the second part in the afternoon.Registration
