"A program that produces incorrect results twice as fast is infinitely slower." - John Osterhout

What is the Harker Programming Invitational (HPI)?

HPI is an annual algorithmic programming competition hosted by The Harker School's Programming Club. Teams of 2 or 3 students compete to solve the most problems in either the Novice or Advanced division on our online grading system in the allotted time. This year, we will be hosting Mr. Jeremy Doig from Google Youtube and Google Virtual Reality as a keynote speaker as well as representatives from various companies and colleges including IBM and CMU as part of a sponsor fair. Lunch, including a vegetarian option, will be provided.

Who can participate?

Any high school student in the Bay Area is welcome!
