Dear Bartenders,Sheriffs and all ranchers
(sounds like Friends...Romans...Countrymen...Doesn't it?)

I was a Java greenhorn until sometime back, but I have made considerable progress because of Coding a lot in Java. How about having regular programming competitions among ranchers? This will help newbies to integrate coding and problem solving techniques and hence learn better and faster. I have been a member of a well known Programming competition site for some time now and I was wondering if we could have an engine similar to(NOT THE SAME) the one those people use. I would like to know what you guys feel about it(Do you already have such a thing going around???). Competition is not always bad.

Thanks a lot for all the replies in advance

You mean something similar to TopCoder site?

I Think it's a good idea and I'm ready to contribute!

What would holding such a competition on JavaRanch add that TopCoder (or other sites) doesn't offer?

We do have the Programming Diversions forum where people talk about such matters and collaborate in solving them.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
