What is Google Code Jam 2015?

Registration is open!

It's that time again, Code Jam 2015 Registration is now open!

This year we're excited to announce the introduction of a brand new track within the Code Jam competition called Distributed Code Jam. Those of you who make it to Code Jam Round 3 can choose to participate in this new leg of the competition designed to challenge your distributed coding, latency reduction abilities, and of course, your algorithmic coding skills. For Distributed Code Jam we've added one new online round and one on-site final round made up of algorithmic puzzles similar to Code Jam, but in order to solve them you will need to write code for a distributed environment. If you compete in both, you could attend the finals in Seattle, Washington and win both Code Jam and Distributed Code Jam.

In order to participate in Distributed Code Jam, you must register for Code Jam and make it  to Code Jam Round 3. Please note, the first round for Distributed Code Jam will take place on June 14th at 14:00 UTC, one day after Code Jam Round 3. To learn more about the new competition visit the Distributed Code Jam page and Terms and Conditions.

Don't forget to brush up on your Code Jam skills before the Qualification Round by doing some of the practice problems from Code Jam's past contests, and visit the Quick Start Guide if you're new to Code Jam.
