A global competition
Hash Code is a competition offered by Google to developers around the world. In teams of 2 to 4 people, participants must solve a real engineering problem provided by Google.
Compete against other developers around the world with the same topic at the same time
The challenge of this prestigious competition for Pharmagest teams was to emerge from this prestigious competition by finding, in just 4 hours, a solution that demonstrated their IT skills but also their creativity and the power of teamwork to solve problems.
The challenge proposed by Google this year was to get the best score by scanning different books that were distributed in different libraries in a limited number of days. Copies of the same book may be available in several libraries. A score was assigned to each book and points could only be obtained once per book.
The best French developers are at Pharmagest. : N°2 in the CodinGame 2019 classification
In its 2019 study "Where are the best developers working in France in 2019", published in Forbes France in January 2020, CodinGame ranks Pharmagest 2nd in the Top 10 French companies in terms of IT talent.
Damien MARINGER, Technical Director at Pharmagest, comments: "After the CodinGame ranking published at the end of 2019, the results of this worldwide competition confirm that we have, within the Group, talents that are among the best developers in France. We are very proud of the momentum that has been built around this Hash Code and the results achieved by our 11 teams. This kind of competition is an excellent way to compete with other developers around the world with the same subject at the same time. Teamwork and skill sharing have been the main ingredients of our success. This is a great privilege for Pharmagest Group. »

One of the interests of the challenge is teamwork: on this point we know each other, we understand each other, and we complement each other perfectly. And the Hub was very stimulating this year, with a ranking that was uncertain right up to the end".
