Coding Contest – Win books, music players and an iPod

The IndicThreads-DevSquare Coding Contest is a weekly contest
to be held over the next 3 months. You can win a great Java book every
week and music players every month. The entire series winner gets a
cool iPod. The leader table will be displayed on IndicThreads.com and
will be updated based on results every week.

As part of this contest you will be presented with one Java /
Java EE problem which you have to solve by writing appropriate code.
Your solution will be evaluated on programming parameters – code
correctness, compliance with standards, coding efficiency, and coding
productivity – and rated.


This is an online contest and does not require any development
environment on your local machine
. You get a maximum of 30
min to write and submit the code solution to the problem. Please note
that the quality of the code is important and not just its working.

* Ensure that you use the same email address in all the weekly contests. Only then can you accumulate points for the monthly and series winner prizes.
* The contest is open to participants from all countries.
