Just like the last couple of years, Google is hosting an online programming competition! As there are always a couple of enthousiasts around on these forums, I’d like to alert you guys to the 2014 edition. The qualifiers have just kicked off 10 minutes ago, so you still have 27 hours to score 25 points and qualify for the next round.
You can find Google Code Jam 2014 here
