Code Jam is Google’s longest-running global coding competition, where programmers of all levels put their skills to the test. Competitors work their way through a series of online algorithmic puzzles to earn a spot at the World Finals, all for a chance to win the championship title and $15,000 USD.
Register and compete in Code Jam’s Online Qualification Round. It lasts 27 hours, but you won’t need that long to earn the round’s qualifying point minimum. Once you do, you’ll advance to Online Round 1. There will be three sub-rounds for Round 1, and you can compete in as many as it takes for you to finish in the top 1,500 of any of these rounds.
The top 1,500 from each sub-round move on to compete for a spot in the top 1,000 contestants of Code Jam Online Round 2. These top 1,000 contestants advance to Online Round 3 and earn a limited edition Code Jam t-shirt.
The top 25 contestants from Code Jam Online Round 3 will compete in the Virtual World Finals for the championship title and a cash prize of $15,000 USD.
You are eligible to receive 1 t-shirt if you are one of the 1,000 highest-ranked contestants from Code Jam Round 2.
You will also receive one of the following cash prizes if you advance to and make at least one submission in the Final Round of Code Jam.
|Competitor Rank||Prize Money|
|1st Place||$15,000 USD|
|2nd Place||$2,000 USD|
