Apply for Google Code Jam Competition
Google’s oldest global coding competition, Code Jam, calls programmers from around the world to solve challenging algorithmic puzzles against the clock. Participants advance through four rounds organized online to compete in the Code Jam World World Finals held at a different Google international office each year. Each round brings new challenges and in the end, 25 participants will have the best chance to test their skills, competing for cash prizes and the coveted championship title at the World Finals.
Register and compete in the Code Jam online qualification round. It lasts 27 hours, but you will not need so much time to get the minimum points of the round. Once you do, you will advance to Round 1 online. They offer three rounds for Round 1, and can compete in whatever amount is necessary to finish in the first 1,500 of any of these rounds.
The first 1,500 of each sub-round go on to compete for a place among the top 1,000 participants of the Second Round of Code Jam online. These 1,000 main participants advance to the Third Round online and get a limited edition T-shirt from Code Jam.
They will bring the 25 best participants of Round 3 of Code Jam Online to their World Finals on the site, which happens in a different Google office every year. There, the participants will compete for the championship title and a cash prize of $ 15,000.
