Just got to know that Google Code Jam is on this year too. Definitely will participate. Last year I got past Qualification round. This year I will have to practice more and hopefully will get past Round 1.
I am a Computer Science and Math double major at Smith College, USA. Originally I am from Latvia. I am interested in Bioinformatics and Molecular Evolution. I love programming in Ruby, and never miss a chance to tell somebody how good linux is.
