Tech opportunities are everywhere, you just have to be looking for it to find it. Just like a great philosopher once said: Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find… It is until you realize that something is missing and you actively search for it that you will discover loads of opportunities for the taken. As an individual and a writer, I am committed to bringing you as many opportunities as I find so you can scale higher in recognition and in your career and make life generally a better place for other people.

Google is one of the most popular tech company in the world known for its internet related services like a search engine, cloud computing, online advertising and software. It is one of the Big Four tech companies with Facebook, Amazon and Apple. Google constantly improves its products and services and opens up opportunities for research to be carried out by interested candidates all over the world. Today, I will be sharing a coding competition organized by Google for interested individuals.
Google Hash Code
The Google Hash Code competition is a team programming competition for University students and industry professionals all over the world. The competition is organized by Google and is expected to be team-based. This means a team of individuals 18 years and above pick a programming language to solve an engineering problem.
The first stage of the competition is the Online Qualification Round where all the teams compete from recognized hubs in their country, then the top teams are selected and announced on February 25, 2020, and then invited to a Google Office for the final round.
To register for the competition, you need to form a team of two to four people in the Judge System. A teammate would log in to the Judge System to create a new team ad then send the invitation link to the other team members. The rest of the team would need to confirm their membership through the link in order to be a part of the team.
