Raspberry Pi seller calls for hack match contestants

24 hours to bake the best Pi rig

SANS - Survey on application security programs

UK-based hardware hackers have just over a week to apply for Hackday, a tournament tuned to the Raspberry Pi micro-motherboard.

The contest takes place on 1 December at Leeds’ Munro House. Proceedings kick off at 10.30am, but the competition starts at 12pm, after which entrants have 24 hours to build a Pi-based system they think will impress the judges, write the code and get it all working.

Not got a Pi? Retailer CPC - which is sponsoring the event, and just so happens to be an off-shoot of Premier Farnell, one of the Pi’s two suppliers - will have some units on hand to buy. As sponsor, it’s providing the runner-up prizes: a motley selection of Pi accessories and gadget toys.

The winner of the contest will get “a personal tour of Sony UKs Raspberry Pi manufacturing facility in Wales”.

Entrants can try their hand at winning on their own, or in teams of up to four people, the organisers - the event is being overseen by Leedshack founder Dom Hodgson - said.

The online entry form is live now. ®
