Registration for Google Code Jam 2009 begins. This year, contestants’ll compete in several 2½-hour online rounds, attacking three to four difficult algorithmic problems during each round. To code up solutions to the problems, they'll use the programming language and tools of their choice; when those solutions’re ready, they'll try them against our fiendish test data.
