Topic: 
Nothing Half Way - Being Fearless With Your Projects
Abstract / Description: 

Quinn has been making games for 36 years, on platforms ranging from the Apple II to all manner of newfangled things. She currently manages engineering for mobile games at Scopely. She also pursues consulting, independent development, mixed-media engineering projects, and writing. In her spare time she welds things, races cars, hacks electronics, and berates her friends with sarcasm.

Editorial comment: Quinn decided that if Steve Wozniak could make a computer in a garage, she should be able to do that too. She then embarked on a journey to build a computer from scratch (PCBs and all) in her kitchen / garage. The result, which she calls Veronica, is a truly homemade programmable computer. You can find out more about all this on her web sites.

 

Please RSVP for Quinn's talk (and free food) by 2/13/16.

Radio Club meeting: Talk on cracking the Enigma Machine, featuring a real, working machine from WWII

Topic: 
Talk on cracking the Enigma Machine, featuring a real, working machine from WWII!
Abstract / Description: 

The Enigma machine was a cunning invention and major advance in cipher technology, which gave the Germans confidence in the secrecy of their messages during World War II. This was a reasonable confidence but proved to be wrong and eventually fatal. The story of the Allies conquering the overwhelming odds against breaking the Nazi code is a story of ingenuity and intrigue. Alan Turing led the Allies efforts to break the Enigma, which significantly shortened the war and ushered in the age of computers.

The success of cracking the Enigma was kept secret for 29 years after the end of WW2, despite 15,000 people working on the effort. This secrecy is especially incredible for us living in the age of the internet, WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden. Over 35,000 Enigma machines were
manufactured, but only 350 are known to exist today. You will see one of these rare machines and have a chance to type in your own secret messages.
