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 starts in September, when you will compete in online rounds against contestants from around the world. From the ranks of those contestants will be chosen the 25 best, who will travel to Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. There, on Friday, November 13, they will compete for ACRush's title of Code Jam Champion, and the grand prize of $5,000.


Registration is open till September 3rd at 4:00 PM PT.

I registered last year and didn't get time to try, I might see if I can find the time this year. Just tried registering as gabehabe and it won't let me though, and there's nothing about already being registered. So I'll be showmeyourears

Also, I've sussed the "welcome to code jam" one in my head. Using the method I've come up with, I should be able to do the hard one (which apparently has had no entries yet? Surprising)

Will try and get some solutions together tonight.

edit,
The bit on the left lies. View the full scoreboard to see how many people have done the difficult ones so far. Mind, they might not be listed because they didn't do it in the time limit.

Got the concept for one, but not gonna bother doing it. Not like I'd win, anyway. :)

Bad day = demotivated. Maybe next year. :/

Also, @Abu, the qualifiers end in about 5 hours (I think)

7386 people qualified, and only 3000 make it past round one. So I'll have to be in the top half to make it to round 2. I still haven't gotten an e-mail from Google saying I qualified >.<. If I somehow make it to the finals, I can't go anyway, cuz you have to be 18, but if I make it to round 3, I get a T-shirt!!! So thats my goal.
