So this is the 7th presentation of the conference and the 2nd set of Lab. Titled “Implementing the New Hotness” By Matthew Ferree and “Whats a Webscraper and how do they work” by Kameron Swinton.

First implementing the new Hotness. Matthew talks about souring in Source Code repositories such as; Krugle, Ohloh, Searchcode, Codeade, and Symbolhound, as well as Github, Stackoverflow and Bitbucket. All can be searched via the site or xraying.
