All competitions will run simultaneously, so one team can only apply for one competition

Algorithms

Coding on a language directly might get your mind tangled and your code messy. Your mind may be brimming with ideas, but the syntax of the language may hinder in converting your ideas to code. So, let’s get your precious ideas converted on paper first in the form of pseudo code. If you think you are good at logic-building, analyzing the complex problems to find the best-fitting algorithms for them, and making time and space efficient algorithms, this is the competition for you!

Speed Debugging

In professional lives today, you seldom get to develop from scratch. Mostly, one gets to scale or customize the existing codes. This is where you need to put yourselves in others’ shoes, understand their logic of doing things, and find flaws in the logic. Making changes without full understanding might make your code smell bad. So, here you have to go greater than the compiler which can only see flaws with the syntax. If you think you are good at detecting logical errors in the code, and rectifying them, this is your chance to prove yourselves!
