Python - A Crash Course for DFE's

Instructor: Bob Osgood, Director — Digital Forensics, George Mason University

Date: Thursday, June 6
Time: 8:30 AM – 3:50 PM
Location: Wilmington Convention Center

About the Workshop:

Does this sound familiar? “I’m a digital forensics examiner (DFE), and I know that I need some scripting skills, but I don’t want to be a full-time programmer.” If so, this workshop is for you.

Python has become the scripting language de jure for digital forensics for many reasons: It runs on all platforms although it is not native to Windows; Python code is readily available on the Internet on sites like Stack Overflow and GitHub; and Last, but not least, the wealth of modules available make what would be complicated programing in other languages covering hundreds of lines of code a short exercise.

This is a crash course in Python programming.  Students should have a solid understanding of the command line in the Windows environment, but programming expertise per se is welcome but not needed.  We will be looking at Python from a digital forensics perspective.  The class is completely hands-on.  Students will need to bring their own laptops and download the community version of PyCharm
