DIY Hackspace

Interested in information security? Want to know more about cybercrime, protection against DDoS, security of very important applications, SCADA and ERP systems? There are no interesting conferences in your city in the nearest future and you can’t make it to Positive Hack Days 2012 for some reason?

Don’t get frustrated! First of all there must be a place in your city where hackers usually hang about. A videoconference may be organized there so that all willing people can remotely participate in the forum, hang out with so-called colleagues and warm up their brains fighting with other hackers. The list of such spots in different cities is available on the official site of PHDays 2012

Vladivostok, Yekaterinburg, Kaliningrad, Kiev, Samara, Taganrog, Khabarovsk, as well as Tunis (Tunisia) and Kollam (India) have already joined us. For those who will be in Moscow during PHDays, Neuron Hackspace will be open 24 hours a day.

If your city is not the list, welcome under the cut!

What is to be done?

You and your friends can become the center of the local hacking community by organizing your own Internet playground for remote participation in the forum as a part of PHDays Everywhere.

You and the visitors of your event will be able to:
  • Watch the Internet broadcasting of the forum in the HD format (both in Russian and English);
  • Participate in discussions and interact with the speakers online;
  • Compete in hacking and protecting information, demonstrate your hacking skills and certainly get prizes.

What do you need to partake in PHDays Everywhere?

  • A room available for visitors on May 30-31, 2012, possibly around the clock. The hacking tournament will last from 10 a.m. on May 30 to 5 p.m. on May 31 (Moscow time) non-stop.
  • An Internet channel with the bandwidth not less than 1 Mbps for each of 6 broadcasting streams.
  • At least one beamer (the more the better).
  • Internet connection for your visitors is advisable to give them a chance to communicate with other guests and participate in the competition.
  • Ensuring intercommunication with the forum’s community for full and pleasant interaction.
Any browser supporting the latest Adobe Flash and HTML5 versions can be used to watch the broadcast.

Information about all participating parties (names, descriptions, logos, links and addresses) will be published on PHDays web site. Contact us at phd@phdays.com.
