Jan: 20 – 22. Jan: GAME JAM: Global Game Jam Graz
Game jams are a wonderful place to learn how to create games from scratch. You are invited to create games together from people from all different disciplines (programming, art, audio, management, testing…) and with various backgrounds and levels of expertise (industry experts, students, newbies). You have never developed a game before? Don’t worry! This is the perfect place for you to dive into your first game dev experience!
Feb: 23. Feb: Google Hash Code
Think you could come up with a way to optimize Internet coverage for Project Loon balloons? Or how about routing Google Street View cars through Paris?
Step into the shoes of a Google engineer and tackle these types of challenges during Hash Code, a team-based programming competition for students and professionals (18+) across Europe, the Middle East and Africa organized by Google. You pick your team and programming language, we pick a real-life engineering problem to solve. Are you up for the challenge?
The competition is divided into two stages:
- an Online Qualification Round on 23rd February at 18:30 CET
For this round, your team can participate from wherever you’d like, including one of our Hash Code hubs. Hubs allow for teams in the same location (eg. city or university) to compete side-by-side in a more fun and exciting environment.
- a Final Round on 1st April
Top scoring teams from the Online Qualification Round will be invited to Google Paris to compete in the Final Round of the competition.
