Google #Hash Code Challenge 2017 for Students and Industry Professionals

Google #Hash Code Challenge 2017 for Students and Industry Professionals

Deadline: February 20, 2017

Hash Code is a team-based programming competition organized by Google for students and industry professionals across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. You pick your team and programming language, Google picks a real-life engineering problem for you to solve. Are you up for the challenge?

The competition takes place over two rounds:
  • Online Qualification Round: Your team can participate from one of the competition hubs or from wherever else you’d like;
  • Final Round: Top scoring teams from the Online Qualification Round will be invited to Google Paris to compete in the Final Round of the competition.


For the Final Round, Google will award cool prizes to the three teams with the highest scores. Every participant will also get a certificate of qualification to the Final Round and a gift bag.


  • Participants will be responsible for arranging their own travel and accommodation. Participants will be able to apply for a travel grant from Google (between 100 and 500 EUR) in order to help offset these costs. If selected, participants will receive the grant after the Final Round takes place.


  • Open to university students and industry professionals in Europe, the Middle East and Africa;
  • You must be over the legal age of your country of residence and at least over 18 years of age at the date of the Online Qualification Round;
  • Your team can consist of two, three or four members and team composition cannot be changed after the Online Qualification Round has begun;
  • Some participants may leave your team, but a team which has only one remaining participant is automatically disqualified.
