Last Few Days : Register for Google Code Jam 2018


Hello community,

I would like to share this important info via this awesome platform.

Every year Google Code Jam calls on programmers around the world to put their skills to the test by solving multiple rounds of algorithmic puzzles. The online rounds conclude in the World Finals, which rotates globally. In addition to being challenging and fun, Code Jam problems can help you develop your coding and programming skills.

It's is great opportunity for the Indian Programmers to compete, and gain substantial experience for the future.Actually last year I missed the competition due to lack of awareness. Hope if you haven't registered yet this post will help you for sure.


You can check out the schedule here : Official Site link :

The platform is bit change relative to last year.You can check the comments in the given link :

All of you are invited in this discussion, to actively participate and share and learn !

All the best to all the participants participating this year!

One more doubt. Can you plz tell me How many people are selected in Qualification Round. And What actually is Online Round 1: Sub-Round A,B,C. Will there be any division in these rounds?? Or Can I participate in all of them. Or getting selected in all 3 rounds is compulsary?? Or I can participate in any one of them depending on my ease.

The Qualification Round runs for 27 hours. You may use as much or as little of that time as you would like.

Unlike every other Code Jam round, there is no limit on the number of potential advancers from the Qualification Round. You will advance to Round 1 if you earn a pre-specified minimum number of points, which will be posted on the page for the round. You may wish to review Visible versus Hidden test sets and optimistic scoring; it doesn't hurt to score some extra points just in case!
