For those unfamiliar with what a Hackathon and Gaming LAN is here is a short description of each.
A Hackathon is essentially a get-together of multiple people to tackle various IT challenges. A C(apture)T(he)F(lag) event is comprised of two or more teams solving various challenges. We are going to be hosting a jeopardy style CTF event. In jeopardy, teams compete in order to rack up the most points by completing challenges and solving puzzles. Jeopardy style CTF events cater for a wide range of skills, from beginners to advanced security professionals. The challenges and puzzles are both digital and physical, such as: software exploitation, web penetration, mathematical puzzles or lock-picking.
A Gaming LAN (Local Area Network) is an event where multiple people bring their own Gaming Computers either be a Laptop or Desktop. They then proceed to connect their computers to the same Local Area Network in order to play games with and against each other. Gaming this way insures the best possible latency when playing multiplayer games thus providing a lag free and smooth gaming experience. Teams of players are also organized during these events and they put to compete against each other in various Electronic Mind Sports games.
