Hello elta68,

As a participant in the Google(TM) Code Jam 2004, we thought you would be
interested in hearing about the Google Code Jam 2005, Powered by TopCoder(R).
This exciting competition puts you head-to-head with some of the best coders in
the world. Take this opportunity to contend for $155,000 in cash and a chance
to impress Google with your skills. […]

You’re a crazy coder? with an exceptional scientific background in maths/physics? and want to fight in a turnament against the best coders in the world? then Google™ Code Jam 2005 may be for You!

The competition is available in four programming languages – #Java, C++, C#, and VB.

I’ve tried last year the qualification round. And I am proud that I was not able to solve any problems 🙂 … They are always combining mathematics, algorithmics, recursivity, and large data collections. Most of the time, a physical concept/background is also needed to start resolving the problem. The question is how looks like developers which are able to resolve such questions in so less time/with stress, and are the questions/answers really useful in a real life of development.

Yes it is only a turnament…I invite You to create an account and look at the questions and maybe make a try….But be prepared to do a lot of training before ever thinking going to the real arena 🙂
