What Are Spring Races?

Spring Races is our online hackathon, comprising of three separate competitions. Each competition, or race if you want, comes with a problem and a deadline that we’ll be publishing on our blog the day the race starts. Each race has its own US $1000 prize. The winner, or winners if it’s a team, will be announced on our blog within 5 days after the race has ended. If the race is won by a team, the US $1000 prize will be split between team members.

Who Can Participate in Spring Races?

Anyone who is at least 18, resides in Romania, and is currently a student of a Romanian faculty, accredited by the Romanian Ministry of Education. Students can enter the competition individually or as part of a team of no more than 3 people.

How to Enter a Spring Race?

STEP 1: Create a Bitbucket account, if you do not have one already.
Bitbucket is the platform where you will be submitting your project.

STEP 2: Enter the Spring Race.
Fill in this form before each Spring Race you want to participate in. You are free to participate in one, two, or all three races. You may switch teams from one race to another, but you cannot compete as a member of several teams during the same race. When you submit the registration form, if you’re part of a team, please enter the details of each team member along with yours.

STEP 3: Upload your solution to your Bitbucket account.
Once you have pushed your project to Bitbucket, you must allow 4PSA Gitmaster (username 4psa) the right to view it, otherwise your solution will not enter the race.
