Google India Code Jam 2005

Just came back from a very exciting event: Google Code Jam India 2005 in Bangalore, held by Google India and TopCoder. I guess I'm lucky to be among the top 50 finalists to be invited to compete on-site for the final round.

Here's the complete list of the final result:

Congrats to Ardian Kristanto Poernomo & Pascal Alfadian who make it into #1 & #2. You really are making the news:

Go Indonesia! I hope Google will consider opening an R&D centre here in Indonesia :) *huh* *dreaming* Well, who knows? Maybe in the year 2100. :)

I was placed at #31, not too good. Nevertheless I really enjoyed the on-site competition. This had really been one of the most exciting experience in my life. I'm very happy to meet my fellow coders and especially to make new friends with several Indonesian coders sharing the same passion & energy.

Congratulations to Mr. Sindunata, for taking the 31st place. Despite of your time taken for your jobs in Hyderabad, you made it to the final. 31 is not bad, as you beat the other 1369 contestants from South & SE Asia. In fact, mathematically the chance of getting the 31st is 31/1400 = 0.0221, which is nearly zero. And you're in it! Well done, and proviciat.

Hi Idban, thanks & salam kenal.

Yupe, mereka berdua anak2 Indonesia. Kayaknya info dari Enda udah lengkap sekali. Memang Ardian dari SMA St. Louis Sby, tapi sekarang lagi kuliah di NTU Singapore. Sdgkan Pascal dari Unpar Bandung.

Mrk berdua org2 yg udah langganan prestasi, tapi prefer to be low profile :).

Oh ya ada lagi sebenarnya yg di #10 adalah Bram, ex anak SMA 5 Surabaya lo yg skrg lagi kuliah di NTU juga.
