The name of the competition speaks for itself. What fun is there without any speed in a contest? It is the briskly nature of this competition that makes it the most interesting and challenging amongst all. Participants form a team of 1-3 students that attempt to solve a set number of programming problems per round. Teams are ranked by the amount of problems solved and the time taken to solve them at the end of each round. Remember at IBA Pro battle, it is not just a game, it is a war!
