Congratulation to all NetRiders 2015

First NetRiders Winners in a new format

Last week we held the final round of the NetRiders CCNA competition for your region.  This is the competition that awards the two Study Trip Prizes to Cisco HQ the week of 10-16 January, 2016.  This year our Study Trip prize winners will be coming from Czech Republic and Slovakia. Congratulations !!!

1    Marek Suchanek   –   Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Information Technology, Czech Republic
2    Tomas Danis   –   SPŠ elektrotechnická S.A. Jedlika Nové Zámky, Slovakia
3    Nicola Buono   –   Accademia del Levante, Italy
4    Metodi Panayotov   –   Bulgarian Industrial Association-Union of the Bulgarian Business, Bulgaria
5    Corneliu Moglan   –   Telekom Foundation, Romania

Check out the full results on the NetRiders website.

As you know, we made some changes this year.  We moved to a regional competition instead of individual country competitions and we changed the structure to Round 3 (which would have been the equivalent of the International NetRiders in past years).  The twenty Round 3 competitors took a 60 minute, 100 question exam and also were sent a PT file with two challenges that they had to present on during a 15 minute WebEx session and then answer some questions from the judges.

I would like to thank judges Bob Schoenherr and Eugene Morozov who spent an entire day to judge the 20 WebEx sessions. This session tested both technical and soft skills.  Europe, Russian Federation and CIS was the second region to try this new format and we were pleased with all the Round 3 competitors and their efforts.

A huge thank you to all participants for their efforts and time investment!
Congratulations to the winners!

Until next year
Yours

Tracy Granlund

I am missing photos of our participants which we used to have with our prior NetRiders format when our participants were asked to come to specific locations, so I decided to post a photo of Tracy instead. She is the power behind the NetRiders competitions. Thank you Tracy for all the energy and time you invest every year!

European Cybersecurity Challenge

ablauf2015_klMost countries lack sufficient IT security professionals to protect their IT infrastructure. To help mitigate this problem, many of them setup national cyber security competitions for finding young cyber talents and for encouraging them to pursue a career in cyber security.

The European Cyber Security Challenge leverages these competitions with a pan European layer to them:

The top cyber talents from each country meet to network and collaborate and finally compete against each other
to determine which country has the best cyber talents.

To find out who’s countries team is the best, contestants have to solve security related tasks from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics and collect points for solving them.

The competition is organized jointly in collaboration with experienced organizations from EU Member States for students. The Organizing Committee of the 1st pan-European Cyber Security Challenge is composed of the following representatives:

Who can participate?

Participants selected by their country’s organization responsible for running the ECSC qualification. In 2015, the following countries can assemble and send a team:

Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Romania, Spain and United Kingdom.

The selected participants should be the top participants from the national challenge and must meet the following criteria:

– They are between 14 and 30 years old
– They are a citizen of the county for which they participate or they live or study there
– They do not (yet) have a master degree or similar
– They do not have a higher education related to cyber security
(e.g., Certified Ethical Hacker, Bachelor in Forensics, …)

Team composition and categories

Teams consist of two (max. 3) coaches/staff members and a maximum of ten (10) contestants from two categories: Junior and Senior. The senior category might not contain more than five (5) members.

Junior: Between 14 and 20 years old
Senior: Between 20 and 30 years old

What are you waiting for?
Join in!

Build your smart device

… without learning a programming language.

Some of you might remember … the ones who came to the Cisco Partner Summit in Barcelona from 22-23. October 2014. Yes, the IoE Workshop “Be Creative with IoE: building a smart thing” where we were building a smart alarm clock.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf you are a student, it is probably hard to imagine that teachers can also work in a team to create something together. They did and this was the team composition:

  1. Manager – ensures the projects are implemented and that everybody is working 🙂
  2. Designer – design and construct the box
  3. Programmer – programs the software inside the boards
  4. Engineer – connect the Raspberry Pi and the Arduino, peripherals of I/O, wires

Great work, super fun and we are looking forward to IoE classrooms in the Cisco Networking Academy World.

Now we have a challenge of for everyone:

Impress Santa and get your present – Enter the #Xmashack Contest

Thanks to the Technical Field Team of the Cisco Networking Academy Bogdan Doinea, Marc Khayat, Serges Nanfack Fomekong, Eugene Morozov and Giuseppe Cinque and the creators of the cool tool Wyliodrinyou can build cars or robots that can move around while your smart device is being programmed – Alexandru Radovici, Ioana Culic, Ovidiu Stoica who were supporting the teams.

We will offer more dates in the new year, the dates will be posted as soon as we have them scheduled.

Why Should I Attend this Webinar?

  • ICT disciplines are finding value in Linux expertise and it is a great complement to networking.
  • Linux content can be challenging to teach and learn.
  • Hearing from instructors and students who found great success in the small market trial of the course.
  • … seeing a demo and being able to ask question and chat with others is always kickstarting ideas.

What Is Special About the New Linux Course?

  1. The course outline aligns with the LPI.ORG Linux Essentials Certificate.
  2. The NetSpace learning environment has lessons, quizzes and assessments for high school and college.
  3. Students use virtual machines, which reduces tech support required.

More Mobile Phone Access Than Toothbrushes

Technical Team Giuseppe… this quote from Google is one of the signs for the developments of more and more things connecting to the Internet and forming the small but steadily growing Internet of things. Giuseppe Cinque is the visionary leader of the Technical Team  supporting a large instructor community educating our youth about the technology behind the Internet and inspiring them to develop and form the solutions and applications of the future.

This topic is part of the agenda educators and leaders from Academy Support Centers and Instructor Training Centers from the Cisco Networking Academy are discussing at Cisco`s offices in Bedford Lakes in London on 20. and 21. 11..2013.

It will be crucial to find a way to interest and inspire our youth – especially our young girls and women – to be part of this development and make sure that technological possible solutions also have the societal value that is needed to solve today´s problems and challenges.
