There is one exiting challenge from Google named Google Hash Code. In short, it is a worldwide online olympiad for programmers, where people form their teams and compete against others during the online qualification round, which lasts for near 4 hours and happens in exact same moment for all the teams. To have more fun, Google suggests organizing teams into hubs — places where they can meet and compete face-to-face with others!
This year I decided to take part in Hash Code, and, to organize a hub by myself, why not? Thanks to my friend Dima, the founder of students co-working Belka Space I took initiative to organize a hub for 2017 Hash Code challenge in Belka.
By 5 days only, we gathered 26 teams of more than 85 competitors (this number was the limitation of our workspace capabilities), and did a great job during the competition itself! We had two top-200 teams in our hub, and it turned out that Ukraine was the number-6 county according to the total number of participants.
The competition itself was a total fun, and I made everything I can to make it as best as possible: prepared booklets and team signs, printed certificates for our local winners, organized a tea with cookies and made this hub exists! Of course, I want to say many thanks to my friends and people who helped me to prepare the room for the competition, you are awesome.
