- Night Da Hack 2010

Date: June 19-20 2010

What is Night da Hack?
âNight da Hackâ comes from a rough translation from French âNuit du Hackâ. Started in 2003 by Hackerz Voice team, and inspired by world famous DEF CON, âNuit du Hackâ is one of the oldest French underground hacking conference.

Around computer security related talks, workshops and contests, Night da Hack aims at bringing together corporate IT professionals and hackers, no matter their skill-level. They will discover the latest technical advances in this area and assess their skills.

Night Da Hack is organized in two parts. First of all, several talks from 4pm to 11pm. Secondly, midnight to 7am: a Capture The Flag contest with 10 teams of 5 challengers each. You are more than welcomed to participate.

In order to improve both quality and accessibility of this event, the 2010 edition will be for the first time open to international talks and workshops.
