Hash Code is a team programming competition organized by Google. Participants include students and industrial professionals from across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Participants team up, pick their programming language, and solve a challenge created by Google engineers. This year, over 4,800 teams competed in the Online Qualification Round.
Online Qualification Round
On March 1st, 4,852 teams from Europe, the Middle East and Africa competed in the Online Qualification Round. Among these teams was Axis Violation which was comprised of Kirill Nikonov, Konstantin Pospelov, Kostya Nikitin, and Sergey Vakhurin, all valued employees of Akvelon’s Ivanovo office.
For this first round of Google Hash Code, Google engineers challenged all participants to assign a fleet of self-driving vehicles to routes that efficiently transport commuters to their destinations in a simulated city. Teams must minimize travel costs and time, while keeping a focus on passenger and traffic safety.
When the dust cleared and the final results were announced, team Axis Violation stood at 35th place out of 4,852 teams, placing them within the top 1% of the entire round. This rank qualifies them to compete in the Final Round of the competition.
Only the top scoring teams were invited to the Final Round of the competition, which will take place on Saturday, April 28th onsite at the Google Dublin office. Teams will be given a new challenge from Google engineers and the winning teams will be awarded Google prizes.
Akvelon would like to give a huge congratulations to team Axis Violation for their achievements in the Online Qualification Round. We look forward to seeing you in action again at the Final Round next month.
