Can this be done in teams? If only I sign up am I still allowed to invite a friend to work on the project with me?

Mosrod (505)

@nicholasBolen This CodeJam is not a team event, so you can't work with a partner. In the future, we might have another team event so look for new CodeJam announcements.


So will this be a topic that you can write in any language?

Mosrod (505)

@CallumThompson Yes, you have to make the repl for the CodeJam before the event, but if you want to write it in a different language, you can delete the repl and add a new one with the exact name but with a different language after the event has started.


@Mosrod great! Already signed up, just wanted to know as I've never done one of these before! Thanks for your reply!

Welp. When you accidentally make your program overwrite the wrong files and destroy your work and can't recover it using the history.
