Kraken + Hackathon = Krakathon
Do you know the Hackaton principle? ICT.io offers you the KRAKATHON! The Hackathon (contraction of Hacker + Marathon) brings together people with different skills to work on a computer theme. In the 1980s, the NSA secretly gathered the best hackers in the United States for a short period of time to detect potential flaws in computer security systems. Today, the popularity of hackathons has grown steadily to become the favorite activity of developers who like to push their limits.
The Krakathon is a hackaton in the form of a very special naval epic. This intensive 24-hour non-stop code competition surrounded by the Kraken’s tentacles is a real test. You will meet your developer friends and use your skills over a whole day to try to earn as many points as possible by completing technical quests. This race against the clock promises to be very emotional!
Who can participate?
You don’t need to know any particular computer language: the competition is open to anyone who has a passion for code. Just form a team of 2 to 4 developers, sys admins, or coders and get started.
