Welcome to the HP CodeWars website!

Welcome everyone!

We are very happy to announce that, this 2022, the HP CodeWars Barcelona is coming back with its 7th edition, with more energy than ever… and in person, it’s time to meet again in our facilities in Sant Cugat del Vallès next March 5th, 2022!

We are back, but we must ensure to follow all Covid-19 protocols and safety measures such as ensuring social distancing, wearing face masks all the time and a small reduction on the number of participants. Beyond organizing this great event, our first priority is the safety and health of all of you, both teachers, students, and also HP employees and people visiting our facilities.

  • For that reason, before getting registered, make sure to read the Rules and Guidelines and FAQs pages, where you will find more details about the event and the necessary preventive measures.

Registration is open from January 25th to February 6th, both days included, and you can start your registration by clicking the top-right corner button “Register now!”.

Important information before submitting your data:

  • Get all the information needed before submitting the registration (names, IDs, liability coverage for private schools, etc.)
  • Only a teacher or a school representative can preregister teams into the contest.
  • Each school can preregister a maximum of 3 teams. The organization will resolve which of the teams are finally accepted.
  • Teams should be registered by order of priority.
  • We want girls to code! The organization will give priority to those teams with at least one girl.
  • Read this year’s Rules and guidelines here.


Born in the US more than 20 years ago, this initiative was brought to Europe and Barcelona in 2015 and since then, it has been a major success counting on more than 300 students in every edition, adding new schools and talent year after year. This unique experience help students from high school to get inspired by all the things coding and programming allows them to do.

With this initiative, HP aims to raise interest in STEM careers among youth, especially among girls! The target is to promote an educational, collaborative, and fun contest. Happening every first Saturday of March, this is an exciting and challenging day for the students to know our company from the within.
