What’s a Hackathon and why are we doing one?

Comments

hackathon
The practice of software developers getting together in one place for an extended period of time first began in the late 90s. Hackathons are now a fixture of tech culture, giving experts and aspiring experts — who often work remotely on their own — a chance to get together in person and create something awesome. Many good causes and companies have gotten their starts at hackathons all over the world.

F-Secure is about to host our annual Hackathon in Bangsar South at our Kuala Lumpur office on April 12-13.

It will kickoff F-Secure’s 25th Anniversary celebrations in the APAC region. The theme is “Securing service in the Web” and developers will be provided with a variety of APIs for web reputation and real-time malware detection from our cloud network.

The winner gets to have dinner with our own Chief Research Officer and inductee to the Infosecurity Europe Hall of Fame — Mikko Hypponen

You can sign up here.

Cheers,

Jason
