Use your SQL skills to interactively command your fleets to glory during this weekend-long tournament for the database geeks.

What is Defcon TV? At the Alexis Park (before the Rio) it was many things: a collection of videos recorded at Defcon. Later it was a "Movies" channel with hacker-approved movies, then movies with "Defcon Filler Videos" between movies, then it included video and audio of presentation tracks, pumped into rooms. What will it be this year?
