Autopsy Student Development Contest

Postby jason » Mon Feb 10, 2014 8:33 pm

We’re happy to announce that Basis Technology will be sponsoring Autopsy® 3 module development contests each semester for current university students! We think this is a great way to expand the functionality of Autopsy and get students involved in the open source development process.

If you are a teacher or student comfortable coding in Java, have a look at the contest page. If you are a teacher and want to use this contest as part of your class projects, then contact us. We're happy to help. Or, even if you don’t need anything from us, let us know and we’ll list you on the site as being part of the contest.

If you are not a student, then stay tuned for a module writing contest as part of the 2014 Open Source Digital Forensics Conference (OSDFCon). See the 2013 challenge page for last year's results and more details.

January - June 2014 Contest

There is a $600 cash prize as well as free admission to the 2014 OSDFCon that will be awarded to the winner, $400 for second place, and $200 for third. In true open source fashion, the final winners will be chosen using crowdsourcing techniques.

The point of these contests is to encourage creative thinking and provide some financial incentive to contribute useful (and free) functionality to the Autopsy community, and as a result the rules of the contests are minimal. The major restriction for participation is being a current undergraduate or graduate student with a .edu email address used for the submission to: The deadline for all submissions is June 27, 2014. For additional details about submission criteria and selection criteria see the contest page located here: ... t-contest/
