All participants who completely solve one challenge (that’s just 1 out of 6 questions!) will get $100 of AWS credits. Prizes are restricted to University Students Only.
Also, you'll get an opportunity to connect for a career opportunity with WorldCup contest sponsors — Alarm, Asana, Capital One, Fidessa, Ooyala, Shift, Sightline Systems, Wipro Digital, Verizon, Zendesk, Zenefits.
Contest scoring is 25 — 40 — 50 — 75 — 100 — 120. Tiebreaker is person to reach the score.
