  • Info on Crash and Compile at DEF CON 24

    I am not affiliated with this event and nothing I write is authoritative for it.

    What happens when you take an ACM style programming contest, smash it head long into a drinking game, throw in a mix of our most distracting helpers, then shove the resulting chaos incarnate onto a stage? You get the contest known as Crash and Compile.

    Do you think you can code? Do you think you can code while drinking? We are looking for nine teams who think they have the smarts, the concentration, and the liver to hold up to our gauntlet of programming. Teams who can not only code, but do so with style. We set you against the clock and the other teams. And because they think watching people simply code is boring, our "Team Distraction" is has taken it upon themselves to be creative in hindering you from programming, much to the enjoyment of the audience.

    Qualifications take place Friday afternoon in the contest area. Teams of one or two people. Be ready to code, as this won't be easy. The top nine teams who showed themselves ostentatious enough to take on our challenge will compete on the Contest Stage Saturday.
