There are many gifted programmers and ingenious hackers. What we want to know is who the fastest and most flexible are. After all, we are in the century of speed!

HackerEarth has recently tied up with German programming event NextHacker (Xtreme international 2 day programming competition). It is a Java programming competition, which is a hunt to find top Java programmers from 3000 participants who can code really, really fast. The prizes are huge! With a combined prize money worth of 500,000 USD, the top programmers win anywhere between 1000 to 150,000 USD in cash.

Out of the 3000 programmers who will participate in NextHacker’s final event, 500 will be chosen from this Java programming challenge. This is a great chance for you to participate in one of the biggest programming events of Europe.

Participate in this challenge, and if you’re in the top 500, you will be invited for the competition in Germany.
