The SAINTCON Hardware Hacking Community is where you can learn about and get hands-on with electronic devices.  It is traditionally where you can find soldering irons, projects to work on, and people with burn scars on their hands.

“We teach lock picking as a concept that helps individuals learn that everything has some form of vulnerability, and that with the right skills and tools, they can become good at either attacking it, or defending it.”

Troy Jessup (Founder of UtahSAINT)
