More About the Facebook Hacker Cup

Basically, the Hacker Cup competition is designed to test the speed, accuracy, and skills of programmers from around the world. Way back in 2012, Facebook reported that 8,000 people from over 150 countries entered the qualification round in January.  Over the course there are more rounds which will narrow down the contestant pool down to finalists. The finalists then are flown out to Facebook and compete for the Facebook Hack Cup World Champion title.

The competition involves presenting programming challenges and problems to the finalists. The finalists need to provide solution and implement in with an allotted time. The problems are designed to test creativity, accuracy, and speed. In order to complete the challenges in time, contestants need to hack out new answers.

If a finalist completed a problem, a live scoreboard will be updated with their name and the problem they had solved. Back in the Facebook Hacker Cup 2012, contestants were able to specify their programming language as well as their dev environment preferences beforehand. (In the Facebook Hacker Cup 212, 70% chose C++ as their programming language.)
