updated with summer 2018 cryptoparty meeting notes
'''Update August 2018: A group of sudoers recently met to discuss rebooting digital security workshops. Please [ join the mailing list] for updates and to get involved!''' Every Third Sunday of the month from 2-5pm, Sudo Room hosts an afternoon of co-learning and teaching about digital security. The driving motivation of our cryptoparties is to learn about end-user security in a fun, welcoming and inclusive environment. Popular topics include: why digital security is important; strategies for activists and journalists; encrypted email; encrypted text messaging; encrypted phone calls; encrypting your hard drive; off-the-record instant messaging; secure web browsing; mesh networks; and presentations on newer projects. All skill levels welcome - bring your phone and/or laptop!

=Hosting A Cryptoparty=
*Cryptoparties are best when some planning takes place before. Hold a planning meeting 1-2 weeks before the event and ping the [ mailing list] to recruit folks who've expressed interest in helping out.
*There are handouts linked to above that can be printed out at sudo - they generally live in a clear document holder / trapper keeper labelled 'Cryptoparty' located in a crate of other trapper keepers on the middle shelf between the workshop and the bike station in sudo.
*Try to reach out to communities that should be using crypto and are generally not connected to the sudo room social network. Activists, journalists, immigrants + expats, POC, etc; Consider hosting the cryptoparty in an entirely different location.
*At least a week before the cryptoparty, get the word out:
**Tweet/FB posts via Sudo Room's accounts (ask Jenny for info)
**Send an announcement to the following mailing lists:
***[ sudo-discuss]
***[ cryptoparty]
***[ noisebridge-discuss]
*Come half an hour to an hour earlier to set up:
**Put the sudo room sandwich board out
**Tape up some signage on the doors if so inclined (there are some paper signs in the clear trapper keeper)
**Find a good spot for your expected # of attendees. Check with Public School; often we have split up into several working groups using different areas of the common space, sudo room proper, and the public school room.
*Starting the cryptoparty:
**Take notes on the wiki - set up a separate wiki page for that month's event [eg; /wiki/Cryptoparty/YEAR/MONTHNAME
**Allow 15-30 minutes to get to a good group size to start
**Go around the room and ask folks to introduce themselves, their level of skill w/ crypto, what they're interested in discussing or working on that afternoon.
**Create an agenda ad-hoc and split the group as needed (pairs work great for things like helping someone set up disk encryption)
**Have fun! Encourage wide-ranging discussion but step in if things start to get to technical. Keep focus on those who are newer to the topic and have specific things they want to accomplish.
