Google Opens Registration For 10th Annual Global Code JamBy: Zach Walton - March 12, 2013
Can you code? Do you like money? If so, you might be interested in Google’s latest Global Code Jam.
Google announced that registration is now open for the 10th annual Global Code Jam that begins next month. The event will see code warriors from across the planet solving advanced algorithms and competing for fame and fortune.
Since this is the 10th year of the Code Jam, Google says that it will be raising the stakes for this year’s competition. The winner of the entire event will walk away with $15,000 and will be automatically qualified for next year’s Code Jam.
The first round of the Code Jam will kick off at noon on April 12 online. After three more online rounds, Google will narrow down thousands of participants to 25 extremely skilled, and lucky, competitors. These 25 people will compete in the final round at Google’s London office on August 16.
If you’re feeling up to the challenge, you can register for the Code Jam here. While you’re at it, you should start working on a few of the sample problems Google has provided to give you an idea of what to expect from the event.
