Hackathon 2015

„This is Golf...”

2016. február 09. - EPAM


This year’s hackathon was a bit different than the previous ones, not just because there were more than 100 participants, or let’s say 36 teams, not to mention, the amount of consumed pizza (226 pizzas, no, not slices J) or that 400 energy drinks they drank during the 1440 minutes of the challenge but what they had to do to unlock the various challenges: to play Golf. J

“This is Code Golf. You get a problem, and you have to solve it, using any language you want (and we support) in as few bytes as you can. The smaller the source, the better your solution is.”

After the initial 2 challenges, the teams had to play mini golf, to unlock further 10 challenges. 18 programming languages from C++ and Java to the esoteric GolfScript were supported. (not to mention last year’s favorite: Lua )

During the night we had to face various challenges: lack of sleep, “food-coma” (never-ever try to eat 1,5 pizzas at once J, or face the consequences ) and the approaching deadline. Some of us choose to have a few hours of sleep, the rest tried to solve this problem by taking a shower. (sleep is better, trust me J)

After the countless hours, and tremendous amount of tests, the leader board was as follows:

1# RESERVOIR CODERS: Attila Lorincz; Balazs Molnar; Csaba Breitenstein

2# NIGHTMARE BUILDERS: Endre Ferencz; Aron Soos; Peter Veres

3# JAVA ARCHIVE BINKS: Gabor Csukonyi; Laszlo Ozsvart; Zoltan Kakuszi

+ SPECIAL PRIZE – for SHORTEST CODE

0XDEADBEEF: Adam Lengyel; Daniel Koczur; Laszlo Juhasz
