Google Code Jam

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:

Join coders from around the world in this intense competition that requires all your mind has to offer.

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.
