Villages are groups of people with common interests that sit together working on a shared hobby or interest.
Villages can help you improve your skills, knowledge and since sharing = caring also provide a lot of fun!

Capture the Flag village
This village challenges you to infinitely increase your skills by performing a series of challenges. These start out simple and increase in complexity. Everybody from all skill levels can experience the gratifying feeling of “when you finally break something”.
Hacking together is more fun, even if you’re working on entirely different tasks. There will be likeminded individuals that have the same goal as you: learning how to break stuff. Learning might be hard, but the skills you get last a lifetime.
The village facilitates things you need for getting started such as a short introduction talk, basic instructions and pointers to some useful tools and sites. If you’re an experienced CTF player, just go ahead 🙂
Challenges are supplied by the “Nuit Du Hack” CTF, which is a global CTF contest which is happing live during Hacker Hotel. You or your team might even compete for their prizes. If you like a more guided start: the internet provides hacking forums like Certified Secure and Enigma Group. These host a safe and incremental set of challenges. Other people at the village have also joined some of these forums: guidance on what to do here is available when you run out of ideas.
No registration required. Enough seating is available. Prepare to learn. Bring your system, an ethernet cable and accept that the harder you try, the more you will learn.
The CTF village is organized by Stitch (Elger).
