RVAsec Badge Build 2014 WrapUp

Badge2BadgeOnWrist

The RVAsec Badge 2014 is complete!

RVA Security Conference goers thoroughly enjoyed their badges which you can read about in more technical depth on our wiki here and GitHub here. We made 300 of them over several months of sustained effort.

The “Badge Build” has become the preeminent annual group project at HackRVA offering an array of challenges from circuit board design and manufacture, to coding, to how to work together on a large scale project.

We’re super proud of this creation. We’ve improved on our capabilities each year while simultaneously expanding the scope of the project itself. We’re already looking ahead to next year, so stay tuned for upcoming badge related events.

In the meantime, here’s some photos from our odessey!

Game Development at HackRVA

New Picture

There’s been some game making going on around HackRVA. It’s messy, strange, and most of us don’t really know what we’re doing (except Brandon, pictured in Unreal4 Fugue State(TM) in top pic).

But we’ve been doing it long enough that it’s become a thing. The 2 projects in action right now: A Unity based 2D Beat’em Up and an Unreal4 Asteroid Mining Simulator (there’s a story there, just ask when you come by, if you dare).

If you’re interested in game development, double-check the calender(we take the day off sometimes), then feel free to join us at 5pm on Saturdays. It’s what we do after we’ve exhausted the power tools and before we launch into Artimes.
