Are you a college student, computer programming superstar with dreams of being crowned supreme collegiate programmer of all the land? If so, you might want to sign up for the TopCoder Collegiate Challenge which is set to take place in San Diego on November 17, 2006. The event is being sponsored by AOL as part of the AOL Developer Network. I had a chance to talk to Duke Tunstall who has organized AOL's involvement in the event and he had this to say about the upcoming competition:
"I am really thrilled to be a part of this event. I was originally a little skeptical about mashing developers with a sporting event, but when it all started to come together, WOW! The excitement and level of competitiveness that these guys bring is incredible and I have only witnessed it online so far. I can't wait to be side by side with the finalists in November."
Of course if you cannot make it out to sunny Southern California then be sure to tune into the Webcast which is being produced by AOL. Om Malik also has published his perspective on the competition. Finally, if you are looking for sweet full-time coding gig - AOL is hiring!
