Tournament Registration

Secure Code Warrior Tournament + BSides DFW
When: November 6th 2021, 10:00 - 17:00 CDT
Secure Code Warrior brings you a defensive security-based tournament from a developer's perspective. The tournament allows you to test your skill against the other participants in a series of vulnerable code challenges that ask you to identify a problem, locate insecure code, and fix a vulnerability. You don't need extensive programming knowledge as this will be a great way to learn the foundations and intermediates of leveraging code that is not only functional but is also secure.

The tournament is run virtually so you can join through your laptop from the most convenient location and time. It should take only a few hours, drop-in as you see fit during the duration of the event to complete all the challenges and win prizes!

Tournament step-by-step guide here:
Instructions for playing:
1) Register for the Secure Code Warrior platform.
2) Check your email for the confirmation and access the unique link to create your profile.
3) Once logged in: click "Tournaments"
4) Join the BSides DFW Secure Coding Tournament

The Secure Code Warrior platform will be open before and after the tournament, so feel free to practice in the "Training" tab.
Monitor the live leaderboard to see how you're performing!
