Google is putting the best coders in world into a mass kung fu competition, complete with misty mountain resort, anonymous ninja fodder and a withered old man who unsurprisingly can kick your ass because he's really a Rain God.
OK, not really. But they are setting up a virtual arena for coders to test their skills against each other and a chance to win cash prizes:
Not only will you be in your glory of coding, but there are prizes for it too! It's more than just $155,000 but a chance to work for the hottest tech company, Google.
This is how it works:
The tournament is a timed contest where all participants compete online to solve the same problems under the same time constraints.
The competition is available in four programming languages - Java, C++, C#, and VB.
