The Nuit du Hack returns 2-3 July 2016

Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not Wisdom. Wisdom is not truth.

F. Zappa, 1979

In a world where most people have been overwhelmed by information for years, few have acquired knowledge and wisdom about the modern systems that digitally run our lives. Fewer have actually begun to look close enough to the mechanisms and uncover their true behavior, find them a better purpose, lay the foundation for alternate worlds and ideas, all this while having fun and facing the challenges. We call them hackers.

Everyday we work hard to awake, educate and inform people of the importance of hacking. Once a year in Paris, we spend 24 hours together, celebrating with talks, workshops and challenges. Join us for the Nuit du Hack 2K16!

What is the "Nuit du Hack" ?

Initiated in 2003 by a crew of people, who got together under the name of Hackerz Voice and inspired by the famous and biggest US hacking event named “DEFCON”. “La nuit du hack” is one of the oldest French underground hackers’ event which bring together, professionals and amateurs of any skill level, around lectures and challenges. Regardless of their skill, guests come to see and talk about the latest advances in IT Security to assess and/or improve their level. To improve quality and accessibility of this event, the 2010 edition hosted many English-speaking conferences and workshops.

Hacking Our Nation.
Securing The Future.

Started with 20 persons, the event never stopped growing up by gathering more and more people from amateurs to the professionals. In 2011, it saw several international renowned speakers and gripped more than 950 guests including more than 50 challengers. During this edition we had the privilege to host world-famous speakers.
