Resolution

These programming challenges were actually not programming challenges AT ALL.
If you read description of the challenges, you’ll see that a bit of google gave us anwsers.

For the programming 1, we were asked to find the “best Randoori Chicken in Delhi” that has been “tweeted last week”, and that the “Tandoori Chicken it servers is like never before”.

OK, just have a look on twitter : https://twitter.com/search?q=Tandoori%20Chicken%20like%20never%20before&src=typd
One of the first answer was this one : https://twitter.com/AnyaHotels/status/690040639619227648

The flag was AnyaHotels

 

The Programming 2 was as simple as the first. By lookling at the description, we were asked to find a website which is described as “a social home for each of our passions” on google+.
OK, no problem. let’s check on google : https://www.google.fr/search?q=plus+google+%22a+social+home+for+each+of+our+passions%22&oq=plus+google+%22a+social+home+for+each+of+our+passions%22
One of the first results was the G+ page : https://plus.google.com/communities/111109470222619817871/stream/7bbe5b38-7bc9-4e77-aac7-0d1e86358f25
In this page, one post was talking about a restaurant. If we check it, we can see that the restaurant name is affimity.com : https://plus.google.com/+TempesttPatterson/posts/1YUWCaPArpm

The flag was affimity.com

 

Finally, last but not least, an aaaaaawesome challenge. Nullcon 2015 has posted youtube videos, and we were asked to find the ID of a video posted in May 2015.
One search on youtube gave us the nullcon channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/nullcon/videos), we looked for videos posted on May 2015, got the ID of each one and tested them on the validation form.
The good video was https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4_PvN_A1ts

The flag was a4_PvN_A1ts

 

Enjoy
