Get your thinking caps on and prepare for the FIRST EVER HITB Hackerspaces Challenge!
During the Hack In The Box SecConf 2011 several hackerspaces will participate in a team-to-team showdown, LEGO-style. And not just any LEGO! No! The Hackerspace Challenge will be featuring LEGO Mindstorms nxt 2.0 kits!
Each team of minimal 2 persons will be given the same task: design, build and test a construction at the premises. Assembly takes place at allocated times divided over two days. To really test the improv skills of the participants, we will only disclose the details of the actual challenge at the start of the security conference.
Every creation is judged by several experts based on performance, looks, creativity, smart engineering, programming skills etc. The winning team is taking home the honour, glory… and an additional money reward. A generous sponsorship donation of €1000,-, courtesy of ITQ.
A spectacle you don’t want to miss! It’s open to public.
