What to bring?

Cryptoparties are participatory events, so don't come with the intention of “just watching”. Bring a laptop that you are willing to install and test software on. If you'd prefer to do this in a Virtual Machine, please download your image before coming to the cryptoparty.

If you're inclined, bring some chips, other snacks, soda, coffee, a six pack, etc.
