Hack Night

You can hack on whatever project you like, but there is also a friendly competition called The Project Euler Sprint (rules below).

Beginners and practitioners alike are welcome to attend! Feel free to pair up or form teams. Food and drink will be provided.


Project Euler Sprint Rules

The Project Euler Sprint is a competition in which teams complete computational math problems from Project Euler (problems can be found here: Starting with problem #1, each successive problem is harder than the last. Consequently, each problem has a point value equal to its problem number. Points are tallied up at the end of the event and the team with the most points wins.

1) Solutions must be coded at the event.

2) Solutions may be in any language.

3) You may practice ahead of time.

4) Problems may be done in any order.

5) Each solution must be checked in* with an event organizer to count toward a team's point total.

6) Teams may consist of up to four people.

Check ins involve showing the code, running it to produce a solution, and showing that the solution is correct in Project Euler's validator. This means there needs to be at least one person per team who has a account.
