About the programme
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 we 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, including from one of the Hash Code hubs. Top teams will then be invited to a Google office for the Final Round.
Prizes and Prize Winners
Prize Winners.Google will notify each Team member about whether they have qualified for any prizes. Notifications will be made during the closing ceremony of the Final Round. All decisions by the Jury regarding prize winners are final and binding and no correspondence will be entered into.

How it works
Once you’ve registered for the contest, you’ll gain access to the Judge System. The Judge System is the online platform where you’ll form your team, join a hub, practice, and compete during the rounds. During the Online Qualification Round, you’ll watch our YouTube livestream to be introduced to the problem, and your team will have four hours to solve an optimization problem using the programming language and tools of your choice. Teams can compete from a local hub or another location of their choice. The top teams from the Online Qualification Round will be invited to the Final Round at a Google office, where they’ll work together to solve another challenge and compete for cash prizes.
