This presentation will start with a description of ethical hacking and a high-level overview of how the internet works. Some of the things covered in this presentation: - how web pages are served up - what a JSON object is - how to change JSON to get desired results - how to change client-side files using tools built-in to most browsers - a little of javascript code and where to learn more ... These concepts will be demonstrated by changing a couple of games to get an unfair advantage. No prior coding knowledge is required.
