Tech Learning Collective

Technology education for radical organizers and revolutionary communities.

Events

In addition to our intensive courses, we also host satellite events such as workshops, skillshares, and demonstrations in collaboration with community centers, hackerspaces and hacklabs, and other groups across New York City, and elsewhere via Internet video conference. Our satellite workshops are a low-commitment way to get a feel for our more intensive courses as well as meet some of our teaching team. Existing Tech Learning Collective students studying cybersecurity may also want to participate in one or more upcoming CTFs.

What is a Capture the Flag game?

Capture the Flag competitions (CTFs) are sets of puzzles intended to distill the essence of many aspects of professional computer security work into a single short-lived exercise that is objectively measurable. Most competitions are free to participate in, and some even award prizes to winners. Individuals and teams compete against each other in a cybersecurity game that is full of puzzles to solve in different categories, like NetSec, AppSec, Cryptography, Reverse Engineering, Binary Exploitation, Web Exploitation, and more. The puzzles in each level get increasingly difficult as you solve them, which makes games great for beginners and experienced players alike.

You can either compete against yourself or against the other participants in the room. You can work individually or as a team. It’s up to you!

As with all Tech Learning Collective events, racism, queerphobia, transphobia, sexism, “brogrammer,” “manarchist,” or any kind of similarly awful behavior will result in immediate removal from class without a refund. Please refer to our lightweight social rules for details on our strictly enforced no-tolerance policy against bigotry of any kind.

About the Anarcho-Tech NYC Collective

The NYC chapter of the Anarcho-Tech Collective provides technological and digital infrastructure support services to anti-fascist, anti-racist, and anti-capitalist organizations in New York City. These services range from computer training for activists and advocacy groups, to direct assistance with digital components of advocacy efforts and private audits of an ally’s security posture when requested. We are an entirely volunteer-run organization operating without any licensing or legal recognition and a financial budget intentionally as close to zero as possible.

About Tech Learning Collective

Tech Learning Collective is an apprenticeship-based technology school that trains politically self-motivated individuals in the arts of hypermedia, Information Technology, and radical political practice. We offer unparalleled free, by-donation, and low-cost computer classes on topics ranging from fundamental computer literacy to the same offensive computer hacking techniques used by national intelligence agencies and military powers (cyber armies).
