Google: ‘Escape from /dev/null’ in Bucharest on October 25

On 25 October, Google will be sponsoring an exclusive programming event, Escape from /dev/null, in Bucharest, Romania.

Escape from /dev/null is a fantasy board game that you experience by solving challenging programming problems. Throughout the day, you will go head to head with other developers to create workable code while interfacing the live game system. You will also have the opportunity to meet Google engineers who will act as ‘judges’ and review your code. In true Google fashion, we’ll be sure to have plenty of food, beverages and prizes.

If spending a weekend with like-minded developers, solving programming challenges and winning cool prizes sounds like your thing, visit this page to learn more and register for the event by October 5.
