Google Code Jam 2019: Register For Online Programming Competition

Google Code Jam is the longest running global coding competition. Whether you are an experienced contestant or a rookie in the coding competition space, you should not forget Google Code Jam 2019.

What Is Google Code Jam?

Google Code Jam is an internationally acclaimed programming competition held and administered by Google Inc. It began in 2003 as a means of finding the top engineering talent for potential employment at the tech giant.

It consists of a set of algorithms which must be completed within the given time. Participants can use any programming language and development environment to obtain their solutions. Google Code Jam was used to deploy on Topcoder’s platform from 20013 to 2007. In 2008, the company decided to build its own dedicated infrastructure for the contest.

How Does Google Code Jam Work?

  • Firstly, create a coding competition profile in case you don’t have one. Then register as soon as possible and the contest opens up and sign up!
  • Once the Round begins, a link on the homepage will send you the dashboard for that round.
  • Upon reaching the Round Overview page, the problems will appear. They will be mentioned in approximate order of difficulty, so it is advised to start with the first one.
  • Read carefully the description of the problems.
  • Write the best solution which you can provide and which you think can pass at least Test Set 1.

  • Then it will run your solutions to the sample cases that meet the limits for Test Set.
  • If it passes those, it will run the code against Test Set 1, and on the next test set if that passes, and so on.
  • For Visible Test Sets, you will learn during the Round whether your code is passed. For Hidden Test Sets, you will only find out at the end of the Round. You can submit as many times as you like, with minor penalties.
  • Solve as many tests set for as many problems as you can before the Round ends. The more test sets you solve, the higher your score.
  • Try to solve as many test sets as you can before the end of the countdown. The tests set you will solve, the higher the score you will get.
