Select one of the three challenge flavours :

  • 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 flavour!


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 30 best scores among all participants (the 3 flavours combined) will be invited to participate in the final. Only the finalists present at the final will win a prize.

  • 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.
