This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Check out TopCoder. They hold algorithm competitions several times a month and have a rating system for those who compete. If you do well, it might be worth putting your rating on your resume. Also, the occassional tournaments pay out some hefty cash prizes. Even if you don't want to participate in the competitions, they have a decent set of practice problems. If you decide to register and compete, please put "Code-Guru" in as the referring member. [ November 01, 2004: Message edited by: Layne Lund ]
