Date CTF Description
2020 USWCTF 2020 Following the success of the previous year the university funded a more substanital CTF event. Myself and rushi wrote a series of challenges. The event was very well received and we ended up running the same event for the Cyber Wales CTF cluster meeting
2019 USWCTF 2019 Myself and rushi combined a series of Docker container based challenges with the CTFd platform to create a CTF event for the university.
2018 USWCTF Organised a small scale CTF event for university students with a website and a few challenges.
