Special Events

Revision 5k Run

As last year, we'll hold a special SPORT(ish) event at Revision: The Exhausting 5k Run!

And you can be part of it! All you need to do is to bring your running gear and show up at the infodesk on April 4th 2015 (Saturday morning) at around 11:00

Even if you're out of shape or very shapely - just do it. Even D.Fox did it at TRSAC and came in superlast! But he prevailed to live another day.

And don't worry about getting lost - we'll take good care of you during the run! We even hired professional Norwegian and Danish runners to help make this work! Guaranteed!

And afterwards, you will feel good and fuzzy and warm inside. You will be on top of the world. And you should have plenty of time to take a shower, grab a beer and be ready for the first compo of the day.

Did we mention that we stole this idea from the TRSAC organizers? Now you know - all credits go to them!

Shader Showdown - Live Coding Competition

They did it at WeCan 2013 - and lived.

They did it at Revision 2014 - and prevailed.
