I often meet people who wish they knew more about security, but they feel as though things like cryptography are beyond their grasp. Nothing could be further from the truth, and CTFs are evidence of this fact.
You can always find upcoming CTFs on CTF Time . Give one a try sometime, and you might surprise yourself with how quickly you're able to pick things up. Even if you don't solve any problems, you'll have an absolute blast.
If you ever have questions about getting involved in CTF or you're looking for resources on learning security, don't be afraid to reach out to me. My contact info is on my profile.

btw, I wonder if greater integration with lets encrypt is possible perhaps with a flag?

That's a great idea. I can't say when or whether we'll get to it, but I've created a tracking issue: https://github.com/facebook/fbctf/issues/24
Having participated in a few CTFs, they are a bit intimidating up front. Having this more visually like a 'game' (which CTF is, really) will garner a lot more attention to get people to dig in and learn.

HHVM doesn't provide a 16.04 package yet in their dl.hhvm.com repo, so what's happening is that the provision script installs the system version of HHVM, which is 3.11. On 14.04, you'll get the correct version which is 3.13.
Regarding your actual issue, how did you actually run the provision script, and on what type of server (i.e VM or physical machine)?
It would be great if the you/the community could provide more examples :) (I get that it's a platform to host your own competition, nevertheless more examples wouldn't hurt)
When is Death Match???
Well come the the Arena!!!
