Improve your secure coding skills by joining the BSides DFW Secure Coding Tournament on November 6th, 10:00AM CT through 5:00PM CT. The tournament allows you to compete against the other participants in a series of vulnerable code challenges that ask you to identify a problem, locate insecure code, and fix a vulnerability.
The tournament opens at November 6th, 10:00AM CT. It may only take a few hours to complete all the challenges. You can start at any time and jump in and out as you see fit before the tournament ends at 5:00PM CT. You don’t need extensive programming knowledge as this will be a great way to learn the foundations and intermediates of leveraging code that is not only functional but is also secure.
All challenges are based on the OWASP Top 10, and players can choose to compete in their preferred software language, including Java EE, Java Spring, C# MVC, C# WebForms, Go, Ruby on Rails, Python Django & Flask, Scala Play, Node.JS, React, and both iOS and Android development languages.
Throughout the tournament, players earn points and watch as they climb to the top of the leaderboard. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers. First place will receive a hoodie, and lots of bragging rights! We will also be selecting a lucky winner for an extra prize, will it be you? Participate and find out!
