Hi! I'm Whitney. Systems engineer, security enthusiast, and developer based in Charleston, South Carolina.
I suck at intros.
I wear many hats and I crave a challenge.
My geeky interests lie mostly in Linux, security, devops, infrastructure, and automation.
My non geeky interests consist of crossfit, Seinfeld, drawing zombified things, and playing outside with my weird family.

This started out as a "nice to have" for the conference, and as of DEF CON 23, DEF CON organizers made it OFFICIAL!
Every year, when you get your badge, you also get a booklet that has the full conference schedule. I wanted to make a more convenient digital version that allowed attendees to plan their con schedule and bookmark the talks/events/parties/etc they wanted to go to.
The catch is, most people don't want to connect to the wireless networks at the conference, and some disable their cellular data, so the data would have to be preloaded in a database.
It's a work in progress
that I hope to have finished for DEF CON 21 that I hope to continue for all future DEF CONs.
App was written in Java. The database is sqlite. The logo is the official DEF CON logo, but all images were created/recreated in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
The app can be downloaded here.
The code can be forked from GitHub here.
As of late 2016, I have recruited outside help since I no longer have the bandwidth necessary to maintain this project.
I have discontinued these as they do not work with the modern of Angry Birds.
I needed a way to transfer my Angry Birds scores between Android devices efficiently, so I wrote an app to do it. Four of them, actually. One for each version of Angry Birds. Except Star Wars because I went and had a baby and didn't have time.
A user can choose to either save/restore their scores locally between the game and their SD card, or they can create an account and use the online option, which saves/retrieves their score files to/from AngryBackup.com.
I also wrote the web interface and PHP API that the app uses internally.
App was written in Java. Website was written in HTML, CSS, and PHP. The API was written in PHP. The database is MySQL. Images are property of Rovio but were redrawn by me in Adobe Illustrator. They can be downloaded in AI format here
