A hackathon is a design sprint-like event in which people involved in software development, collaborate intensively on software and/or hardware projects during a short period of time. The term combines the words hack (where "hack" is used in the sense of exploratory programming, not its alternate meaning as a reference to computer crime) and marathon (understood as a competitive and collective experience with a common goal).
Goals of the 4YFN 2017 cybersecurity Hackathon
In the 4YFN cybersecurity Hackathon, hosted in Barcelona, teams will compete against each other in developing or improving open source tools, solutions and/or mobile applications in the cybersecurity and/or the IoT (Internet of Things) fields.
Participants will need to collaborate and to drain out all their qualities to prove their security skills and software development abilities. The best valued teams will have the chance to win the competition.
All the contributions performed by the Hackathon teams will provide the global security community with new capabilities in a short period of time. It is desirable that these contributions will have continuity and evolution: “The Hackathon should be just a beginning…”.
Additionally, the Hackathon exhibits the following goals and virtues:
Since a marathon is a long distance running event with an official distance of 42.195 kilometers, the 4YFN cybersecurity Hackathon will last for around 21 horas distributed in 3 days, so it is equivalent to a half-marathon (21,975 kilometers).
INCIBE will provide free lodging and transportation facilities to selected 4YFN cybersecurity Hackathon participants.
