Select one of the three challenge flavours (sub-challenge) :

  • Software engineering flavour
  • Network & Infrastructure flavour
  • Cybersecurity flavour

Each sub-challenge has a different set of questions and a majority of questions in the flavour topic!

You can participate in more than one sub-challenge!


Scores calculation :

You will have to give the correct answer to 15 questions in maximum 10 minutes!

  • A good answer gives you 1 point
  • A wrong answer or skipped answer results in a score of 0

You can skip questions and come back to the skipped questions later.

Time counts!

Not everyone has the same questions, or the order may differ, so there's no point in trying the quiz several times or doing it together.



At the end of the online phase of the challenge, you will receive the details of your score and ranking privately. As a result, participants can't share the answers.

In case of a tie, the timeframe to answer the questions will determine the order in the leaderboard.

The 25 best scores among all participants (the 3 sub-challenges combined) will be invited to participate in the final at Cisco in Diegem on 29/02/2024 at 18:00. Only the finalists present at the final will win a prize.


Qualification and Disqualification

We really do not want to disqualify you, but sadly we will have to, if we catch you doing any of the following:

  • Participants must be over 18 years old and be full time IT STUDENTS (not professionals) and residents in Belgium or Luxembourg to be invited to win the prizes.
  • Sponsors employees are welcome to participate but will not be eligible to win prizes.
  • Only one registration per person is authorized (with your real name).
  • The participant can only compete in his own name and not for someone else.

  • Attempting to damage the website or taking action that may have a negative impact on the normal process/operating procedure of the challenge. Incidentally, this may also be considered as a legal violation, and the organizer reserves the right to initiate a legal procedure and claim damages before the court.
