Google Hash Code Competition

Hash Code is a team programming competition, organized by Google, for students and professionals around the world. You pick your team and programming language and Google  pick an engineering problem for you to solve. This year’s contest kicks off with an Online Qualification Round, where your team can compete from wherever you’d like. Top teams will then be invited to a Google office for the Final Round. Deadline for the registration is on February 25th.

Google’s team-based programming competition, Hash Code, allows you to share your skills and connect with other coders as you work together to solve a problem modeled off a real Google engineering challenge! In small teams of two to four, coders all over the world will tackle the first problem through an Online Qualification Round. Though this round is hosted online, teams can come together to compete side-by-side in locally coordinated Hash Code hubs. The top teams from this round are invited to join at an international Google office for annual Hash Code Final Round.

Once you’ve registered for the contest, you’ll gain access to Google’s Judge System. The Judge System is the online platform where you’ll form your team, join a hub, practice, and compete during the rounds. The top teams from the Online Qualification Round will be invited to the Final Round, where they’ll work together to solve another challenge and compete for cash prizes that ragnes from 1000 USD o 4000 USD.
