Hi guys. This is one contest that nerds wait for all round the year just like atheletes wait for the Olympics. If you are a nerd you know what I am talking about. Its none other than the Google Code Jam contest. Its been a success since it started. Let me present to you Google Code Jam contest 2008 "The battle of the geeks". Do you love solving tough problems and algorithms, then this is the place you belong. And even you are not very proficient in programming, go give it a try. You will come to know where you stand because only the "geekiest" survives.
Google Code Jam is a coding competition in which professional and student programmers are asked to solve complex algorithmic challenges in a limited amount of time. The contest is all-inclusive: Google Code Jam lets you program in the coding language and development environment of your choice.
Google Code Jam begins in July and continues in August, when you will compete in online rounds against contestants from around the world. The Top 500 participants will advance to onsite competitions at a local Google office to compete against those in their region (Asia Pacific; Europe, Middle East and Africa; and the Americas). The Top 100 will participate in the final round at the Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California on Friday, November 14.
Did I forget something. Oh yes, the winner gets a handsome prize money of 10,000 USD. Now this will surely make you give it a try. Top 500 finalists gets a Google Code Jam T-shirt. The Top 100 finalists from the local onsites will be flown to Mountain View, California to compete in the onsite finals. Travel and accommodation will be covered by Google.
