Host Hacker Challenges

Remember the scene from The Social Network in which programmers were racing the clock, coding, and doing shots—with the goal of landing a job at The Facebook? If you can put together a great challenge for programmers, you're not only targeting the best, most competitive hackers with a passion for what they do, you're also screening for skill. Plus, you're showing candidates you understand what they do, appreciate their talents, and can stimulate them. Can't hack the all-night coding marathon? Post a challenge online, or on a billboard, a la Google.
