Divisions at ignition hacks
For beginner/first-time Hackers, Division Sigma is the challenge stream for you! Hackers will team up to participate in a series of workshops, followed by short tasks, called "Proofs", which are graded by the judges. By the end of Ignition Hacks, Hackers will have created a final project and the winners will be the team with the highest overall score on each "Proof".
