Hacker Trivia, Jan 10th

On January 10th, the Annapolis Junction Chapter co-sponsored Hacker Trivia at Jailbreak Brewery in Laurel. The event drew hundreds of cybersecurity professionals together to battle to the top of the leaderboard around topics of software engineering, cryptography, and general cybersecurity knowledge. At least 30 teams participated in the event. The goal of co-sponsoring was to attract new members to the Chapter and get awareness of the new Chapter to a new audience. At the event, we had a sign-up sheet for people to join our mailing list.
