Hash Code 2022 returns with a new look

Registration is officially open for Hash Code, Google’s team-based programming competition! On February 24, developers around the globe will team up to test their coding skills and have some fun. Whether you’re new to coding or a seasoned expert, there’s something for everyone. Here’s what you can expect from Hash Code 2022:

Compete on a new platform

Hash Code is excited to announce that participants will compete on a new platform — the same one used by Code Jam and Kick Start — so participants will all get the same experience across Google's Coding Competitions. You can test it out after you and your team register for the competition and try out the practice problem available at g.co/hashcode.

Work like a software engineer

Hash Code problems are written by Google software engineers and are based on real engineering problems. Hash Code is a great way to build your engineering skills and learn something new. Because there is no right answer, your team can submit multiple solutions during a round. — which is exactly how our engineers work on a daily basis at Google.

Want a taste of what Hash Code problems look like? You can find all problems from previous years of Hash Code in the archive.

Team up with friends (or meet some new ones)!

In order to compete in the Qualification Round, you must be on a team of 2-4 people. If you don't have a team, don't worry! You can still register today and find teammates later using our Facebook group.

Amp up your resume

Hash Code is a great way to grow your coding skills and experience how real software engineers solve real problems. Every team that submits a solution and scores one point in the Qualification Round will receive a certificate in their Coding Competitions profile. This certificate can be posted to social media, added to a job profile or used for your resume.

Hash Code 2022 kicks off with the Qualification Round on Thursday, February 24 at 9:30 a.m. PT and wraps up with the World Finals in April. Register at g.co/hashcode by February 23 and spread the word!
