We survived Google Hash Code 2017

Last week we attended Google Hash Code 2017 in GROW at Greenpark, Reading.

The problem was released at 17:45 and we had until 21:30 to write a solution that scored better than the 2814 other teams in the competition.

The problem statement related to optimising YouTube’s caching servers by pre-loading popular video’s.  You can read the full problem statement and examples here (PDF, 362K).

We had a great evening and come up with a solution to the problem which is always nice.  We enjoyed a free Curry and got some Google swag including stickers (We love stickers! Feel free to send us stickers anytime) and the rather cool sunglasses you can see in the feature image of this post.

Thank you to the Organisers (Google Developer Groups Reading and Thames Valley), volunteers and GROW at GreenPark for the great venue. We look forward to next year event.
