We are Batman’s Kitchen, the UW competition team, and we are looking for new members.
Interested in learning about computer security issues and/or being part of a competition team? We hold regular meetings, practice breaking/hacking stuff, learn about the latest security topics, and compete in CTF/hacker jeopardy competitions throughout the year. You don't need any prior experience in security to join the team -- all you need an interest in CTFs and/or security plus a willingness to learn. Our group is an interdisciplinary group of students from CSE, EE, iSchool, pre-engineering, and other UW departments. We also collaborate with the other two UW branches (Tacoma and Bothell).
Our Info Meeting is next Wednesday, October 1st, CSE room 691, at 6:00pm. We welcome everyone. At the Info Meeting we'll talk about the type of competitions we do, topics we'll cover in the coming year (e.g., lockpicking, bitcoin, etc.), and about local hacker groups and hands-on labs.
Even if you can't make it to the meeting, sign up for our mailing list at https://mailman.cs.washington.edu/mailman/listinfo/uwctf and check out our website at http://uwctf.cs.washington.edu. If you have any questions, email me and I can tell you more.
