Q. What was the eligibility criteria for the participants?

A. Anyone be it a student or  professional can be a part of Code Gladiators. The only eligibility required is that one should be aware of coding techniques. This helps in offering a fair chance to all coders and enable them to showcase their expertise to the world irrespective of their age, rank/score/marks, educational pedigree, past achievements, gender, location constraints etc.
 
Q. As discussed, please share the details of the teams.
 
The participating teams comprised of individuals with zero to more than decade of experience in the coding domain.

Q. In terms of next Code Gladiators, what are the expansion plans?
 
TechGig Code Gladiators 2018 witnessed a massive participation of 2,28,880 coders out of which only the best 15,000 were shortlisted for the semi-final round and just 397 coders were considered for the final round. The 2018 edition also hosted new themes like Artificial Intelligence, Alexa, Blockchain among others and these witnessed encouraging participation. About 180 theme participants made it to the hackathon finale.

The 2017 & 2018 editions were about the scale of the event, the next target is to deep dive into various realms of technology, particularly the new divisions favoured by industry. We would like to create a platform that offers umpteen opportunities for coders to experiment with their work, and breathe life to unique ideas and innovations. The next event will  be a better and bigger event and we would also intend to take TechGig outside India.
