Over the years we have participated in and organized many events. This page lists notable ones.
Items are tagged as Event, CTF or Hack.
Linked events are explained in more detail below.
The first and second week of February 2017, Fontys organized Huge Leap and the NEXT week for the English and Dutch students, respectively. On both events we had a Hatstack Village at which we did lockpicking, a CTF and workshops like a crypto party.
Lock picking was popular and at NEXT 39 people took part in our CTF. A honorable mention should go to Glocom who managed to solve all but the hardest crypto challenge!

LeftClick thanked us for the report and noted that, ironically, next month they were going to launch a new version of their systems which resolves everything we found. On February 23rd 2017 we will receive them!

As reward, the “best” one would receive a Garmin smartwatch of about 135 euros.
Libra and Luc were the main contestants and they found almost identical vulnerabilities. Among other, more theoretical issues, one could:
In the end, Luc officially won but Max' results were so close that both received a smartwatch
