WTF is a CTF

We gave a workshop on how to get started with CTF challenges.


As a first year student I had already gotten the chance to get familiar with CTF challenges. I really enjoyed this and I definitely learned a lot. In my second year I noticed a lot of students wanted to start with this but they didn't know where to begin. So me and some friends decided to change this.


Using our experience of online practicing and previous CTF competitions, we created a platform with examples of CTF challenges. We made exercises for almost all of the different categories. Next we put together a course in which we explained the solution of every challenge. You can view the write-up on our GitBook (Dutch).
