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.
