As you know, we made some changes this year. We moved to a regional competition instead of individual country competitions and we changed the structure to Round 3 (which would have been the equivalent of the International NetRiders in past years). The twenty Round 3 competitors took a 60 minute, 100 question exam and also were sent a PT file with two challenges that they had to present on during a 15 minute WebEx session and then answer some questions from the judges.
I would like to thank judges Bob Schoenherr and Eugene Morozov who spent an entire day to judge the 20 WebEx sessions. This session tested both technical and soft skills. Europe, Russian Federation and CIS was the second region to try this new format and we were pleased with all the Round 3 competitors and their efforts.
A huge thank you to all participants for their efforts and time investment!
Congratulations to the winners!
Until next year
I am missing photos of our participants which we used to have with our prior NetRiders format when our participants were asked to come to specific locations, so I decided to post a photo of Tracy instead. She is the power behind the NetRiders competitions. Thank you Tracy for all the energy and time you invest every year!
