Google Code Jam 2009 Announced.

Google Code Jam 2009, powered by Google App Engine, will let contestants compete in several 2½-hour online rounds. They will have a chance to resolve three to four difficult algorithmic problems during these rounds. You will be able to use the programming language and tools of your choice. Once the code is ready to run you will be able to decipher test data provided for the purpose. One wrong answer out of a hundred, you will have to rinse and repeat.

Registration is open as of today. But before registering, read the rules and after registering, begin to practice by trying out the problems from last year's contest. The qualification round starts on September 2. After four tough rounds of online competition, the top 25 competitors will be flown to our Mountain View headquarters to to match wits for the $5,000 first prize — and the title of Code Jam champion. Go break a logic.
