The competition was divided into three categories; coding, testing and design. The coding competition included a series of problems that were presented to the participants who were to solve them using a programming language of their proficiency.

The testing part was where the participants were asked to test their database and automation concepts. The aim of this category was to challenge the technical skills in identifying and solving a problematic area. While the last category required participants to design a concept using Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator in a constrained environment with a time duration.
