Sharkfest Europe is back for a second year, and Garland Technology is continuing our support of the Wireshark community by sponsoring this year’s Group Packet Competition. While Sharkfest is well established in the US as the premier educational conference for Wireshark users to share knowledge, experiences, and best practices, over in Europe, the conference is still in its early years. At Sharkfest, the Group Packet Competition is designed to bring teams of Wireshark users together. Each team is given a group of trace files and a sheet of questions. Then, they are challenged to race against the clock to find the answers, often using areas of Wireshark they aren’t familiar with. The Competition is a great way to teach users of all different skill levels new tricks about the analyzer in a fun environment.
