Hack 17 – August 2021
In the midst of a beautiful Summer day, we had a quieter than usual remote hack, but nonetheless, we had an average of 1.5 people attend over the course of the day.
Things People Did
Adam got the day kicked off, trying to figure out how to update his Discord nickname for the remotehack server…eventually, he was woke enough, and figured it out.
Panda jumped on for some chitchat about incident response and general outage training, which was the other thing that Adam was working on. They discussed information that might be nice to include in such a forthcoming (semi-)automated training system, and generally had a very nice and relaxed time not accomplishing anything concrete.
…later in the day, since Panda was only available for the first half, Adam was able to work out that his terraform was EXTREMELY rusty, and finally remembered that you can, in fact, create a non-addressable EC2 instance in a public subnet…and then updated his terraform config to not do that.
