About this event

The Google Developers Group Galway will be hosting a Hash Code hub in the PorterShed. We want you to be a part of our event and submit a team today!

We hope to host a diverse collection of teams of varying experience ranging from students to seasoned developers.

Think you could come up with a way to optimize Internet coverage for Project Loon balloons? Or how about routing Google Street View cars through Paris?

Step into the shoes of a Google engineer and tackle these types of challenges during Hash Code, a team-based programming competition for students and professionals (18+) across Europe, the Middle East and Africa organized by Google. You pick your team and programming language, we pick a real-life engineering problem to solve. Are you up for the challenge?

The competition is divided into two stages:

an Online Qualification Round on 23rd February at 18:30 CET For this round, your team can participate from wherever you’d like, including one of our Hash Code hubs. Hubs allow for teams in the same location (eg. city or university) to compete side-by-side in a more fun and exciting environment.a Final Round on 1st April Top scoring teams from the Online Qualification Round will be invited to Google Paris to compete in the Final Round of the competition.
