Hardcode 2013 Starts Today!

Hardcode 2013, Google and Syscan's secure coding competition, has started! The contest information has been posted at https://code.google.com/p/hardcode/

From the description:
Teams must develop a marketplace web application that allows people to organize bartering of academic goods or services in a school setting (e.g., selling used books, supplies, tutoring services). The Application should support a general marketplace where any Seller can post an Item they want to sell and any Buyer can express interest in or bid on an item. This Application does NOT include a payment transaction system; the Application connects potential Buyers with Sellers but does not perform actual payment transactions.
If you're a student take a look!
