Google Code Jam takes place over the course of multiple "Rounds," fixed time frames in which contestants compete to solve a set of algorithmic problems. Rounds take place at scheduled times. Contestants who do well enough in around advance to future rounds, until the finals, in which the champion is decided. Rounds are of different lengths, varying from 2 hours to 4 hours except for the Qualification Round, which lasts 27 hours.
Contestants don't have to be ready to compete at the start of the Qualification Round; it's 27 hours long so that people around the world can compete at a time that's convenient for them. Google Code Jam, recommend setting aside up to 2 hours out of the 27 to compete, though of course, they can spend as much or as little time as you like within 27-hour period. Any contestant who earns a fixed number of points, which will be displayed on the contest scoreboard, will advance from the Qualification Round and be eligible for the First Rounds.
First Rounds: There are three first rounds: Round 1A, Round 1B and Round 1C. Each lasts for two hours, thirty minutes. You can compete in all three of the first rounds if the contestant wants to, or in any one or two of them; but as soon as they are placed in the top 1000 of a first round, they have qualified for Round 2 and they will not be allowed to compete in later first rounds.
Round 2: The 3000 contestants who advanced from the first rounds compete in this round. It lasts two hours, thirty minutes. The top 1000 contestants win shirts, and the top 500 contestants advance to Round 3.
Round 3: The 500 contestants who advanced from Round 2 compete in this round. It lasts two hours, thirty minutes. The top 25 contestants advance to the Onsite Finals. If any of those contestants are unable to attend the Onsite Finals for any of the reasons listed in the Terms, Google may advance contestants ranked below the 25th place to replace them.
Onsite Finals: The top 25 contestants in the world travel to a Google office and compete for the grand prize, and the title of Code Jam Champion!
For the most part, your submission will be compared character-by-character to the judges' output. More precisely:
