About

What is Hash Code?

Google's flagship team-based programming contest, Hash Code, for students and professionals in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Other countries. You pick your team and programming language; Google picks a Google engineering problem for you to solve. Hash Code is the perfect opportunity for you to showcase your technical abilities and interface with different coders as you work in teams. In groups of two to four, coders everywhere in the world will handle the initial problem statement through Online Qualifications. Hash Code is going fully virtual in 2021. Participating in the Online Qualifications is a great way to connect with friends, peers and the global developer community in a safe way. In spite of the fact that this round is facilitated on the web, groups can meet up virtually to contend next to each other in privately planned Hash Code Hubs. The top groups from this round are welcome to go along with us for the virtual World Finals.

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 Qualifications, you’ll watch Google’s 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. The beauty of Hash Code is that there is no right answer to any of the questions. The problems for each round are optimization problems, meaning you and your team can submit a solution, optimize it and submit it again. The top teams from the Online Qualifications will be invited to the virtual World Finals, where they’ll work together to solve another challenge and compete for cash prizes.

What's Involved

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 Qualifications, where your team can compete virtually from wherever you’d like, alongside your virtual Hub. Top teams will then be invited to compete from our virtual World Finals.
