After 20 years, Google’s Coding Competitions come to an in depth with a last spherical.
By: The Coding Competitions Crew
Bear in mind 2003? Earlier than Chrome, Google Calendar, Android, and YouTube? Once we rigorously cleaned up our saved emails as a result of GMail and its gigabyte of storage hadn’t arrived? Twenty years in the past – Google launched a worldwide coding competitors known as Code Jam, which challenged programmers of all ranges to check and hone their expertise by racing to unravel algorithmic issues.
From there, our coding competitors lineup continued to develop. Kick Begin started as a contest for current graduates in China and shortly unfold all over the world. Hash Code, Google’s first team-based problem, began in Europe. And a first-in-class Distributed Code Jam requested contributors to construct options that might scale when run on a number of machines.
All through our coding competitions’ 20-year historical past, you’ve got generated billions of traces of code throughout thousands and thousands of submissions. You’ve got gone via lots of of rounds for 1000’s of issues and put in thousands and thousands of hours of code execution and testing. Over one million of you from nearly each nation worldwide have participated — from skilled programmers to college students and everybody in between. And now, simply as we invited you to our very first spherical in 2003, we’re asking you to hitch us for one last occasion because the competitions come to an finish.
Be part of us on Saturday, April 15, 2023 at 2 p.m. UTC as we host 4 simultaneous on-line rounds of competitors at various ranges of problem. Register now to get in on the motion.
And to those that’ve taken half through the years: It has been an honor to be taught, succeed, fail, and have enjoyable coding with you. By the conceptual artwork, the slides, the gophers, and the absurd quantity of pancakes, we did it – and we did it collectively. Thanks for happening this journey with us.
