Ahmad Zaenuri Dahlan Putra, a student of the Information Systems Department who is often called Ayik, has made another achievement. Ayik and his collaboration team managed to bring home the 2nd place title at the Abu Dhabi Digital Authority (ADDA) Capture The Flag (CTF) – an international hacking competition held in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates on 10-14 October 2022. Within the team, Ayik as the co-chair of the four colleagues from Indonesia and Vietnam was met through the CTF community.

“The ADDA competition is not limited by age and status, my team also includes students of the same age as others who have worked as professionals in their fields,” he explained.

This seventh-semester student explained that he was curious about hacking for the first time when he found out about game cheats in 6th grade. Then he slowly learns it independently and often tries it out. At the beginning of the lecture period, precisely in 2019, he joined CTF. Initially, he competed alone until he decided to enter the pro-player team with a selection stage that was also not easy. From that team, he formed a new collaboration team that won the ADDA international hacking competition.

Come on, this outstanding student has been known by name 2 years before becoming a student at ITS. He has won the BIONIX Student Level 2017 and 2018 where this competition was held by the Information Systems Department. Therefore, he received a Golden Ticket to enter the Information Systems Department in 2019. Not only that, during his 3 years of study, he was never absent from participating in GEMASTIK – a scientific competition held by the National Achievement Center (Puspresnas) in the Division I Programming category. Ayik won two gold medals in 2019 and 2021.

“In the future, I want to take part in more offline CTF competitions because I’m very excited to meet new, cool people!” he said excitedly during the interview session.
