You know how they say Techies are the world’s latest Rockstars? Well here’s on place where such Rockstars are born or made. Are you ready to take on the next challenge? It’s Google Code Jam 2012.
Since 2003, Google Code Jam has brought together professional and student programmers from the world over to solve tough algorithmic puzzles. Last year over 30,000 coders competed, but only Japan’s rng..58 walked away with the grand prize: the title of Code Jam Champion, and a hefty $10,000 reward.
Who will sit atop the scoreboard at the end of this year’s battle? Will it be you?
The competition consists of four online rounds, culminating in the world finals. This year, the final round will be held at Google’s office in New York City, USA this July.
So stretch out your wrists, get that kink out of your neck, and prepare to let your fingers fly. Registration opens on Tuesday, March 13th, 2012.
