I'm Vito, I helped run DEF CON CTF from 2013-2017 as part of Legitimate Business Syndicate.

I like computer festivals, coffee, basic electronics, and CTF games of course.

I love that "*hacker voice* I'm in" feeling when I agent-forward my local ssh auth sock to another machine, scp something from there, and see the light on my (physical) ssh key blink when it auths

my first was really good, hope to see everyone again soon!

all fun and games until someone pulls the fire alarm, then you get cold and wet and tired

elixir's `String.valid?/1` that checks if a string is utf-8 only is cute

comments mine
# check the tail if the head is utf-8
def valid?(<<_::utf8, t::binary>>), do: valid?(t)
# we're at the end, definitely utf-8
def valid?(<<>>), do: true
# head wasn't utf-8 and we're not at the end, definitely not utf-8
def valid?(_), do: false

glad I skilled up in binaries in the ctf, solving problems I didn't attempt beforehand

On the way home from an amazing and a wonderful time with friends in Berlin.

Thanks everyone who made it a great trip for me, with special thanks for Eat Sleep Pwn Repeat for running two CTF games (one that I did really well in), the Milliways crew for having a nice space to just meet up with people and mess with displays, and of course all the 35C3 angels & staff for making it all work.

<3 vito
