The competition begins with three online rounds consisting of a set of a mix of algorithmic problems which must be solved in a fixed amount of time. Each year, the top top twenty-five competitors from the online rounds compete in the Code Jam Finals at a Google office; they aspire to walk away with the coveted Code Jam Champion title and a cash prize.
Bruce Merry is the winner! Bruce (bmerry) is the first ever Distributed Code Jam Champion (all 10 finalists pictured). Distributed Code Jam was the first global competition of its kind, challenging contestants to write code for a distributed environment.
