Russian wins Facebook’s third annual Hackers Cup
A Russian programmer has once again taken top honours at Facebook’s annual Hackers Cup – the third annual code-off took place on Saturday.
Facebook had flown in 25 of the brightest programming minds from around the world after approximately 8000 people from 150 countries competed in a 72 hour qualification round in January. The 25 finalists were from China, Germany, Japan, Poland, South Korea, Russia, Taiwan and Ukraine as well as the United States. As with last year, the elite group did not include any women.
