Google Code Jam

Code Jam allows competitors to use any coding language throughout the competition such as C++, JavaScript, INTERCAL, LOLCODE, Whitespace etc. All Code Jam problems are written by Google Engineers. Many of these engineers were actually the contestants in Code Jam competition years ago. They dedicate their time to make every problem rewarding and fun for Code Jammers, from the easiest Qualification Round problem to the most complex challenge in the World Finals. For practice, you can check out past problems here.

So what do you need to enter the competition? Well, according to the terms and conditions, you just need access to the Internet, and a valid email address. Yup! That’s it.

Registration for this competition has begun and it will continue before the Online Qualification Round that will take place on April 7. You can check out the Quick Start Guide and the Schedule for this year’s competition.
