OFFICIAL VIDEO X HELLO BARCELONA 1st BOOTCAMP 2017

Take a look back on our previous "Hello Barcelona ACM-ICPC Bootcamp, in collaboration with Moscow Workshops 
ACM-ICPC". Students and coaches from all over the globe gathered at our campus to learn from and work with the world’s top programmers, soak in the Barcelona sun, and share in the comradery built within the programming community. We're looking forward to hosting again, this time at the beautiful and technologically mind bending Media-TIC building.

VENUE MEDIA-TIC

The Media-TIC building is wildly new and inventive incubator, designed to foster creativity and play host to some of the most exciting organisations in the tech business world, such as Barcelona Activa, Mobile World Congress, 4 Years From Now (4YFN), Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3), eLearn Center and Barcelona Digital Technology Center. Inaugurated in September 2010, this veritable “Sagrada Familia of Tech Companies” is aiming to be a citizen forum used for meeting, learning and putting into practice ICT (information and communication technologies).

Let’s get into the specs of the building - it is a cube with four unique facades which attend to specific functions according to their orientation. The mosaic drawing of the ETFE skin translates the forces exerted by the pillars and columns, which shows a study of the form down to the smallest detail. The plants are diaphanous, open and moldable (being released by an external structure called a "shell"). These are crossed, by a vertical patio that gives continuity to the building and connects it to the surroundings. And we’re excited for you to see the rest for yourself!

SCHEDULE

As our schedule continues to evolve, so will our details! Thank you for your patience.

VISA SUPPORT

All applicants are responsible for their own visas. As soon as your application has been proven successful, Harbour.Space issues an official personalised admission letter necessary for visa purposes. Student visas usually take more than six weeks to process so we strongly recommended to apply as soon as possible – allowing enough processing time.

We kindly ask participants to come prepared to avoid wasting time configuring your computer system at the event.

The requirements are as follows:

Any browser would work with the testing system, no special clients are required for the system. 

The testing will be run on computers based on Linux.

To compile programs written in C/C++ on Linux-based laptops you will need a compiler compatible with gcc 4.9 (or higher); Geany or Code::Blocks of the latest version are recommended as IDE. Similar or newer versions of compilers are recommended for Mac users as well. 

For Windows it is recommended to use Code::Blocks (if possible, choose the distribution kit with a compiler included) and Geany; using Visual Studio is recommended starting from Visual Studio 2013 (although for full compatibility it's better to have Code::Blocks and a gcc port).

To compile and debug programs written in Java it is recommended to use the latest version of Oracle JDK. As IDE you can use Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA.
