Registration for the 12th annual Google Code Jam programming competition is now open. This time around, there’s a new track called Distributed Code Jam to test participants’ skills in solving problems using a network of computers in tandem.

The competition attracts professional and student programmers from around the world to square off against each other as they attempt to solve algorithmic puzzles.

Previous Code Jams have seen more than 35,000 coders compete for the top prize. This year’s Code Jam Champion will take home a grand prize of $15,000, and the winner of the Distributed Code Jam will win $3,000.

Registration for the 2015 edition is open from today until April 11, with the qualification round kicking off on April 10 and the finals scheduled for August 14 and 15. Contestants must be 13 or older at the time of registration to enter.
