Google Code Jam 2019 has been announced. You may read the schedule. To register, you'll have to wait until March 5.

Unfortunately, there will be no Distributed Code Jam in 2019. I think that this has something to do with DCJ platform not receiving any substantial updates for the last three years. Maybe people who made it have already left, and no one can keep it working. It will be sad if this year's Distributed Code Jam is going to be the last.

So it looks like I'm the last and ultimate champion of distributed algorithms B)

FFS, CodeJam sure is getting worse these years. They had an interesting unusual competition (although with a way too high entry barrier) and just dropped it.

That's sad. And I was hoping that Google would add some kind of Quantum Code Jam (Microsoft has already pioneered it with Microsoft Q# Coding Contest - Summer 2018). Guess now it is less likely to happen.

          Nah, we did OpenCup contests at Charles University in Prague. You just have to be actually doing university trainings in controlled environment.

            That's right, but most of universities don't have regular trainings. Even if they have, they are not always open on Sundays.

              Ok, but I don't think it's such a problem for Polish schools.

It doesn't seem as if DCJ is going to be cancelled. It sounds like they're trying to fix the problems you mentioned about the platform since they said "[it will] allow us to evolve and improve the contestant experience."
