DEF CON Badge Puzzles
In addition to sponsoring the project, the New Context team created a number of challenging puzzles on the badge for you to solve. Just getting access to the challenges is a puzzle in itself.
As with all hardware projects, it’s always interesting to work on a dev board long before you get actual hardware. Getting the parts connection, getting the tool chain built, configured and running had the usual hick-ups, but once things were running, coding went smoothly. When coding one of the puzzles, we ran into an issue where the badge would start misbehaving in random and weird ways. The Ides Team quickly identified it as a stack overflow, and fixed the issue and we were back to writing code.
Let us know how you like the badge. How long did it take you to unlock the challenges? How many of you got stuck at TSA with this badge in your carry on?
