The rules are simple. Teams must be made up of maximum 4 members and will fall under two categories: Industry teams and Student teams. A programming task will be launched on Friday at 8pm sharp, and participants will have 48 hours to solve the task. There will be individual prizes for both categories.
This year's edition will yet again be held at the Microsoft Innovation Center at Skyparks, Luqa. Participants can opt to work from home or at the Microsoft Innovation Center. Any programming languages can be used.
