What is the Harker Programming Invitational (HPI)?

HPI is a free, annual, algorithmic programming competition hosted by The Harker School's Programming Club. Teams of 3 or less compete in either the Novice or Advanced divisions to solve the most problems on our online grading system in the allotted time. Attendance is free, and lunch, including a vegetarian option, will be provided. We will be hosting Make School's Mr. Jeremy Rossman as a guest speaker and representatives from various colleges.

Who can participate?

Any high school student in the Bay Area is welcome!
