Join us for the 2 day Project Possibilty code-a-thon taking place during the weekend of January 31 - February 1. This programming contest helps develop open source software for individuals with disabilities. Over the two day period, students are teamed with industry mentors (from companies such as Google, Amgen, etc.) to plan and develop open source software from scratch. This event is an excellent way to assist a great cause while developing long term relationships with industry contacts.
Of course, as with any ACM event, expect exceptional food and prizes. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided for both days of the event. Contest winners will walk away with a cool $1000 cash. Other winners will also receive industry sponsored prizes. We look forward to seeing you there for food, fun, and excitement for this great cause!

Enjoy solving tough problems and grappling with technical challenges? Then enter Google Code Jam and compete for more than $80,000 in cash prizes!
Google Code Jam is an annual competition in which programmers – both students and professionals – are challenged to solve complex coding problems in a limited amount of time – using any programming language or tools you like.
We began offering Google Code Jam in 2003 – on a platform powered by TopCoder – in order to support competitive programming around the world. This year, for the first time, we're producing the contest on a homemade platform developed by Google's own developers.
Here's how it works: First, you'll need to register from Tuesday, June 17 through Wednesday, July 16. Then, you'll compete against global contestants in the online rounds during July and August. The Top 500 will advance to compete in one of our Google offices around the world in September/October for regional competitions. Finally, the Top 100 will compete in the coding showdown on November 14, 2008, at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California.

We hope to see you at the Finals!
