About the Workshop
Participants will gain hands-on knowledge of techniques implemented for the web 2.0 Suicide Machine, using a tool for automated web applications testing. Gordan and Juan will bring you an overview of media hacking practices, and recent web-based network technologies used to program our online experience. You will be introduced into writing simple code for your own projects. This technique could be useful for interventionist tactics and critical hacks within social media. Web-related programming skills desired, but not absolutely necessary!
