We are happy to announce that Lambdaspace is hosting a hub for the Online Qualification Round of Hash Code, a team-based programming competition created by Google for university students and industry professionals. Anyone interested is invited to participate!

All you have to do is find a team (two to four people), register at https://hashcode.withgoogle.com/signup.html, select our hub and bring your coding and problem-solving skills with you! Registrations closes at the 26th of February 19:00, so don’t miss the deadline!

The Online Qualification Round takes place on the 1st of March, from 19:00 to 23:30. Top scoring teams from this round will then be invited to Google’s Dublin office to compete in the Final Round of the competition in April.

The timeline will be as follows:
19:00 : Choosing a place to sit and getting your laptop and your team ready
19:30 : Live stream starts (no specific action needed)
19:45 : Task made available, competition starts!
22:30 : Live scoreboard freezes.
23:30 : End of the competition and announcement of the score for the local teams

Some of us are also participating, so it will be fun to see you there! What did you say? You can’t wait? Well, we can’t wait either!
