Week 6 | Ancient Brain Bug Bounty | SISTEM | HackerClub | B.Y.O.P. | IrlCPC

Hey Everyone,

Hope everyone enjoyed the snow days! As a welcome back we have some pretty great events happening this week!


Ancient Brain Bug Bounty

DCU Lecturer Mark Humphrys want to recruit some white hat hackers for a “bug bounty” scheme, and he thought Redbrick would be a good place to start!

Mark will be coming in to talk to us about finding bugs and exploits in his site, Ancient Brain. Each valid exploit or bug comes with a generous cash reward, so come along to LG26 at 15:00 on Wednesday the 7th of March to find out how you can help stress-test his site!

More info can be found at https://ancientbrain.com/bugs.php


SISTEM - Student’s Inter-Society Tech & Enterprise Meetup

Jobs Board Survey

Here at Redbrick we sometimes hear about different jobs that might be of interest to our members. As a committee we want to hear what our members think about the idea of a jobs board as one of our services.

We have made a typeform survey to gather your opinions. We would really appreciate it if you could fill it out!



Come along to L101 on Tuesdays at 16:00 to improve your programming skills by solving competitive programming problems. Practice makes perfect, right?



Redbrick’s weekly workshop, Build Your Own Projects is on again! Running in L128 on Thursday from 16:00 to 18:00 this week, BYOP is a workshop focused on project-based learning, i.e applying what you already know to projects.



The 2018 Irish Collegiate Programming Competition will be held on Saturday the 10th of March in UCC. If you intend to travel down with Redbrick to IrlCPC, please email committee@redbrick.dcu.ie as soon as possible as we can give 50% off to the first seven teams that sign up to travel with us.
