Tech Talks Build Skills for Now—and Later

The chapter hosted its first Tech Talk of what will be many this year at Geekdom, a co-working space in San Antonio. The goal of Tech Talks is to give Young AFCEANs tangible knowledge they can use immediately in their respective work centers and to enhance their skill sets. Chris Gerritz, founder of Infocyte, and Jacob Stauffer of Coherent Cyber led the February event, "Powershell Scripting for Security Ninjas." Charlie Weissenborn, vice president of Young AFCEA, said it was extremely successful: "There were a lot of participants and a lot of positive feedback. This event was purposeful because the subject is something you will use in the field." Stauffer said the event was put together well, and he enjoyed interacting with participants. His presentation involved some challenging exercises taught in Powershell that audience members eagerly used their laptops to solve. Participant Shawn Cressman explained how he thought the event was helpful. "The more people involved in this course, the more valuable they can become at work. If used properly, Powershell can save time and help automate things at work," he said. The success of this event has the chapter looking forward to the next Tech Talk.
