‘Hack the Code’ with TripAdvisor

Want to know the agenda for Web Summit? Here it is.


We’ve teamed up with the great team over at TripAdvisor and are delighted to announce a unique coding challenge to Ireland’s developer community ahead of Web Summit.

So what is it? During Web Summit TripAdvisor has created a daily coding competition open to web developers attending the event, with a range of prizes on offer for those able to solve coding puzzles themed around travel and the Summit, including VIP access to an exclusive Developers Lounge.

A new coding challenge will be issued on each of the three days of Web Summit with both the challenges’ difficulty and winners’ rewards increasing with each passing day.

How do I enter? Good question. Details on each daily competition will be available via our Web Summit newsletter and on Twitter via our @WebSummitHQ handle, or on site at the TripAdvisor stand exhibiting at Web Summit.

 A few words from TripAdvisor Ireland’s Head of Engineering to get you in the mood for the competition:

“We know Ireland is home to the cream of the crop in the coding world and that the Summit brings together an even larger group of highly skilled engineers, so we’ve created this challenge as a way to directly engage, and challenge, that talent pool. Since opening a dedicated engineering hub in Dublin last year it has been great to be part of the buzz surrounding the world-class developer community that is growing here, and we’re always on the lookout for great engineering talent to join our team.”

And our very own Paddy Cosgrave:

“We’re delighted to have TripAdvisor’s support and partnership with our Developer’s Lounge. Over the three days of the Web Summit this year we have a Builder’s Stage with dedicated content and exhibitors for those developing and building technology. The Developer’s Lounge is part of what will hopefully be a special experience for all the coders, engineers and developers attending the Web Summit”
