BSides PDX Quiz Show 2019 Entry Form
Game time: TBD
(Contestants please plan to arrive 20 minutes early.)
JOIN US AGAIN AT BSIDES PDX FOR THE ULTIMATE CONTEST OF SECURITY KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERTISE!
This is the game where we take some BSides attendees and pit them against each other in a battle of wits to see who’s the smartest... who’s the fastest... who’s going to emerge with the ultimate alpha-geek status for the next year!
WHAT'S IT LIKE?
Just like many TV game shows you’re probably already familiar with. We take three contestants, put them on stage and ask them a series of questions relating to aspects of system and network security, exploits, hacking, hardware, software, administration, history, and even some random bits of pop culture thrown in for hack value. We’ll even give the audience a chance to answer a question or two if the contestants are stumped.
SOUNDS COOL! WHERE DO I SIGN UP?
Congratulations on accepting the challenge. You’ve taken your first step toward fame and the undying admiration of your peers. Just fill out the entry form below, click NEXT and take the short qualification test. We’ll review all the applications and select the contestants to be in the show.
We’ll email you (or announce at the start of the game) if you’re selected to be a contestant or back-up.

TRANSCRIPT OF LAST YEAR'S QUIZ SHOW
Curious what questions come up in a typical show? Curious how the contestants fared last time? Just follow this link to see a complete set of the questions asked in the 2018 game and their correct answers, along with the scores earned by the contestants.
Name (real name—we won’t use this during the game. We may not need it at all, but it would be nice just in case something comes up where we need to reach you. In the history of the game we've never actually needed to do that, though, so if you would rather not provide this, just leave it blank.)
Email (so we can contact you—or just show up early for the game and listen for your name to be called)
Handle (what we will call you during the game)
Bio (something brief but interesting about yourself which we can use to introduce you. Where are you from? What’s your security background? What’s something interesting people at BSides don't know about you? Be as serious or humorous as you'd like).
