Russia Uses Strip Club To Train New Generation Of Hackers


When you are training up to be a hacker it is important to be able to deal with any number of real-life distractions.

Naturally then, these Russian coders were put to the test in the distracting realm of a strip club.

As reported by RT this Moscow club held a ‘Hackathon’ to see which participants could hold their focus.

Lucky Lee, owner of the club, is reported by The Sun as saying:

The goal of the hackathon is to put a programmer in very difficult, critical conditions.

One would need to develop a prototype programme despite the fact that there are beautiful girls around.


The winner was reportedly offered a job at ‘Golden Girls’ along with a dance credit.

The competition’s victor has yet to be publicly named, but I’m sure that for many contestants it was the taking part that counted.
