Registration is open to participate in the Hackathon of CyberCamp 2019

You can submit your proposals between September 20 and October 24 until 23:59 CET.

What is Hackathon?

A Hackathon is a collaborative software (or hardware) development meeting or event held over a short period of time in a playful environment. The term combines the words hacker (a restless person, anxious for knowledge, an expert enthusiast, often associated with software, hardware and technology) and marathon (in the sense of a competitive, collective experience with a common goal).

Objetives of the CyberCamp Hackathon

The hackathon of CyberCamp is a prestigious competition recognized by the cybercommunity. The hope of the fourth edition is to go further and increase the quality and the utility of the projects developed in the competition.

The contributions done during the Hackathon provide new capacities for the cybersecurity community, achieving results in a short time. Additionally, we expect a continuity and a future evolution of the contributions and tools developed. ''Hackathon should be only the beginning...''

  • What's more, the Hackathon has the following objectives and benefits:
  • Identification of talent and technical and creative skills of the participants.
  • Provide an educational environment (teaching and learning) for the improvement of investigation skills and software development.
  • Be an opportunity for the development of social skills, promoting collaboration, teamwork and networking.
  • Development of skills and experience in a competitive environment with the support of an expert jury.
  • Improve the interaction with the cybersecurity community to solve real problems.
  • A recreational setting that promotes enjoyment and entertainment.
  • Enhance the idea of "the Hackathon is only the beginning ...". There is a continuity and a future evolution of the contributions and tools developed.
