Break-it, Fix-it Security-oriented programming contest, beginning on

In a nutshell: Contestants build and/or break software over the course
of three rounds, each lasting roughly two weeks. At the end, there
will be two sets of winners, the best builder and the best breaker,
and two runners-up. $13,500 in prizes is up for grabs.
