On the kickstart website it shows 2024 as the dates for the 2023 rounds?

Saw the same for Code Jam and Hash Code. That is likely a bug.

[Update: That is indeed a bug. The website has been updated with the correct date.]

      Year has been fixed on their site. By the way, I think only the registration date is delayed, the competition dates are intact at least so far.

A week ago, Google Code Jam Program Manager was laid off [1] and now the Google Code Jam page is showing that the registration has been delayed [2].

I hope nothing is going on here, but this does not look good

      After nearly 20 years of Code Jam, it's time to say goodbye. While Code Jam will not continue as planned, we invite you to participate in our Competitions' Farewell Round on Saturday, April 15 at 14:00 UTC.

      This sounds like it is canceled ):
