I competed in this last year, didn't get very far, but it was fun,

I hear this year they have their own platform and aren't using topcoder, which I believe opens up more languages.

I'll register, as captainhampton puts it "for the shits and giggles."

But, I can imagine the words "epic phail" popping up all over when it starts.

Sure. I never participated in such contest, so I guess it's time to begin to.

I participated in last years event, it was very challenging and a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I didn't make it very far.

This year looks even better, you can use any language you want. There was language restrictions last year.

I wish I had the time to do, but I don't. :(

Best of luck to all those that participate this year!

Wouldn't doubt it, I was thinking actually about solving the practice ones and posting them as snippets...but then I reconsidered, thinking that would have been a bad idea.

Likely there are many genius programmers there (on Google CodeJam). After two minutes from the start someone 'rem' already posted a correct solution for the first problem. I am still solving those 3 tasks.

I wish I had time to participate.

All the Best to all the DIC participants!
