Secure Code Warrior to host 3rd annual coding competition

Secure Code Warrior, the global, developer-driven security expert, will host its third annual Devlympics secure coding competition on October 17-18, 2023. 

Devlympics is a free tournament that welcomes developers from all over the world and levels of expertise to participate in coding challenges. The winner will be crowned “The Ultimate Warrior” and receive recognition and prizes.

Hosted on Secure Code Warrior’s agile learning platform, developers can sharpen their skills on complete, relevant, and reliable secure coding content.

This year, the Ultimate Warrior Arena features tournaments covering API, Web, Mobile, Cloud, Front-End, Mashups, and more. Participants can tackle offensive and defensive challenges in preferred languages and see their teams compete on the international leaderboard.

In its third year, Secure Code Warrior’s Devlympics builds on the success of previous events by offering new language, frameworks and challenges. 

For the first time, Devlympics is introducing a brand-new “Boss Level,” where developers can unlock challenges twice as difficult to combat real security defences. Participants will have a direct attacking path to identify potential weaknesses in an organisation’s cybersecurity defence.

Pieter Danhieux, the CEO and Co-Founder of Secure Code Warrior highlights their goal of helping developers gain security expertise by seamlessly integrating secure code learning into modern software development. They aim to transform developers into valuable assets for security. 

Secure Code Warrior is committed to providing hands-on developer education in a tournament-style format, catering to the changing landscape of DevOps. Danhieux also expresses appreciation to sponsors and partners and anticipates another successful year of hosting a popular training competition in the industry.

Pieter Danhieux says: “Secure Code Warrior is on a mission to inspire developers to become security-skilled; by integrating agile, secure code learning with modern software delivery, developers become invaluable security assets.” 

“As the DevOps landscape continues to shift, Secure Code Warrior is committed to the community by providing inclusive, hands-on developer education through tournament-style learning.” 

“With the help of our sponsors and partners, we’re proud to serve developer teams and look forward to another year of hosting one of the industry’s most sought-after training competitions,” says Danhieux. 

Secure Code Warrior’s platform is built on agile learning principles, which the company says is the most effective way to teach developers to identify and fix vulnerabilities at the start of the SDLC. 

Tournament participants are empowered to build a robust community-oriented culture of security while engaging with peers through challenges based on real code examples.

Ahead of the tournament, participants can join fellow developers in the Secure Code Forum Discord server. The Secure Code Forum provides a way to interact with fellow competitors, share feedback, stay connected with peers and discuss coding best secure practices.  

Over 600 enterprises trust Secure Code Warrior to implement agile learning security programs, build safer software, and create a culture of developer-driven security.
