TrueAbility Linux Showdown 8: Win a Wi-Fi Router

TrueAbility returns with their most difficult of competitions yet, Linux Showdown 8 “The Assembler”, beginning March 16th. The competitions consists of two rounds, spanning over the course of about three weeks.

Assembler refers to the low-level programming language used in computers or programmable devices. Unlike high level programming languages which are similar across multiple platforms, assembler is unique to talking directly to a certain hardware architectures. This means that you better bring your ‘A’ game to this competition!
