Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this podcast, Professor Yeh-Ching Chung describes how his team from NTHU in Taiwan prepared themselves to win the SC10 Student Cluster Competition. His tips for futures teams are generous indeed, especially if you consider how his crew was able to crack 57,000 passwords for the contest, which was more than all seven of the other teams combined.

If you are a vendor, I encourage you to learn more about this contest and consider donating equipment for the SC11 Student Cluster Competition.

Submissions for the SC11 showdown open up on February 11, 2011. Student teams, it’s time to start your engines because the champs are coming back!
