Event Recap: Google Hash Code @ ITU

Another great event in the books! Earlier this month BuILD hosted the Copenhagen hub for Google’s Hash Code Competition. We want to thank all those who came out and made the event a success! We would also like to thank the student volunteers who took the initiative to make their dream a reality.

37,000 Participants from Norway to South Africa

The atmosphere was relaxed and light-hearted with groups excited to hear the problem statement which was live streamed from Google Dublin. Over 37,000 students and professional participated this year, according to google it would take 22 days to drive from the northern-most hub in Svalbard to the southern-most in South Africa.

This year’s problem was about self-driving cars. Teams were asked write programs that would pick up riders and deliver them to their destination within a given amount of time.

A Fun Night of Coding

Third Year Software Development bachelor student Marcus Joost was happy to spend the evening in good company and having fun, “we joined to try our hand at solving the problem,” he says, “I’m glad I participated. We really enjoyed our evening of coding.”
