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

F-Secure Life

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
