Description

Dell and Opportunity@Work, with TechHire Austin invite YOU to join us for TechHire Capture The Flag, a half-day competition where you can practice new technical skills, solve puzzles and win prizes while working as a team.

Whether you already have some tech experience or you’re just looking to get started, you’ll have a chance to:

  • Learn new programming, IT and cybersecurity skills, with mentors available to guide you along the way
  • Choose one or more roles to focus on developing your new tech skills: software development, systems administration, network engineering, IT support, or cybersecurity.
  • Capture digital “flags” by solving challenges to help your team win prizes

Bring your friends and compete together as a team, or arrive early to meet new friends and be placed into a small team to collaborate together.

  • As an aspiring software developer, we might challenge you to code a short script in a programming language of your choice.
  • As an aspiring systems administrator, we might challenge you to provision systems with new users, software, and file permissions.
  • As an aspiring network engineer, we might challenge you to set up, monitor and debug connections between servers.
  • As an aspiring IT support specialist, we might challenge you to solve common technical issues.
  • As an aspiring security analyst, we might challenge you to find security vulnerabilities in servers and web applications.

Mentors will be available throughout the event to help answer your questions one-on-one and offer helpful hints along the way. Bring your laptop, resume, and form of identification. Lunch will be provided!
