    I'd like to participate in C&C, and I'm looking for a team mate. I'm a Java developer with Ruby background, if that matters. Contact me via PM or

    If anyone is looking for a team-member I'm totally down to compete with you. This is my first time at DECON and this would be a great way to break-the-ice. Here's my github: www.github.com/yandil

    Frink Rules, 0xdecaf, and Neg9, Sprechen Sie Dick Pics, good to hear you'll all be back for another round.

    Well the trophy is a D20 this year. If you're only going to go for 40% worth, the other teams are going to smash you. Better step up your game man.

    Awesome. Going for the contests is a great way to start off DEF CON. Here is a good replace to recruit someone to team up with, and of course you can probably find someone looking to team up once you are at DEF CON.. You don't strictly _HAVE_ to team up with someone, but it works to your advantage to have a full team of two people.

    To answer other questions, we'll have a table in the contest area this year. And will be manning it on Friday, when we'll be holding open the qualifications. It'll be two hours to complete three problems, so half the time teams got in previous years. We'll announce who placed, and who the standby teams are Friday night/Saturday morning. The main contest is going to take place 5pm to 9pm on Saturday night on the Contest stage. Beer always has been provided by DEF CON. As to what kind, it I forget, but we always ask it be decent, since no one I know drinks crap beer.

It sounds like with this change that you'll either get less qualified teams who managed to get lucky and sign up or miss out on people who weren't at Defcon on Friday or unable to dedicate Friday time to qualification rounds (e.g. participating in other contests).
    So it's not the first nine teams who sign up, it's the BEST nine teams who sign up and complete the pre-qualification problems. Same type of pre-qualification we ran previous years, but this time it takes place during DEFCON. So expect more people to be trying their hand at it, and the competition for those nine spots to be a bit more fierce.

    You use whatever dev environment you want. You essentially get random test cases which are generated, you run them against your program, and upload the results. You have to solve the problem with code, and you drink when your code fails to compile, produces the wrong output, seg-faults, etc.. If you're using the break-fix method of programming, this can result in getting rather drunk. Main rule is that if you try to compile/run your code for any reason and it didn't result in you solving the problem, drink.

    Some sample problems here if you want to brush up

    Team Frink Rules! plans to return and take back the title after a sad second-place finish last year. You are invited to bite it, team Sprechen Sie Dick Pics.

    0xdecaf, we suggest that if you want to beat Frink Rules!, you would be better to change your programming language, not your team title. Because Frink rules.

    Looking forward to the most funnest part of DEFCON!

    Sincerely,
    Irwin M. Fletcher
    P.S. Have a nice day.
