The weather set a positive mood even before the event began.
The first steps into the Molodaya Gvardiya club made it clear for the attendees: it was the right place.
The rush hour was pretty tough for everyone. The organizers promised to take it into consideration :)
The members of the PPP team, USA, still unaware of their upcoming victory at the PHD CTF 2011…
or 8 hours, the PHD CTF 2011 playground turned into a field of an intensive struggle.
The contestants of the PHD CTF 2011 were overwhelmed with emotions, but there was no single second to get distracted.
The hacker contest was the center of everyone's attention.
A few screens displayed each step of the CTF contestants in the real-time mode.
The organizers promised to enlarge the font size on the scoreboard next time :)
There was no single minute when the playground was empty.
Non-contestants were truly engrossed with the competitions.
The laptop was successfully hacked and awarded to the winner as promised.
The business program was carried out in five sections at the same time.
The mood of the seminars fluctuated from informal…
...up to formal and quite serious
The end of the day saw the funniest Too Drunk to Hack contest for all comers.
To mark the end of the forum, the attendees cut and ate a cake adorned with the logotype of the event…
….and enjoyed a hilarious and positive performance of a popular Russian band Neschastny Sluchai (The Accident).
