About the Google Code Jam competition
Google’s longest-running global coding competition, Code Jam presents programmers, at all levels, an opportunity to showcase their coding skills.
Participants progress through four online-hosted rounds to compete at the annual Code Jam World Finals that are held at a different international Google office each year.
For every round, there are new challenges, and in the end, 25 contestants will have the ultimate chance to put their skills to the test, vying for cash prizes and the coveted championship title at the World Finals.
- $15,000 and a championship title
How it works
Register and compete in Code Jam’s Online Qualification Round. It lasts 30 hours, but you won’t need that long to earn the round’s qualifying point minimum. With that done, you will move up to Online Round 1.
The competition offers 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 will then 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.
