Teleios Code Jam (TCJ) is an internationally recognized software development program, which seeks to inspire and motivate students to recognize their talent and capacity to write software. It is designed to expose students to real world, team based, and collaborative software development, by bringing them together with academia and the industry.

The first TCJ took place in 2008 in the form of a one (1) day coding competition, when Teleios Systems was invited by the University of the West Indies to participate in the Caribbean Internet Forum. This opportunity provided a launching point for what became Teleios Code Jam today. The TCJ has evolved over the years to become a month long event, made up of road shows, video based content delivery, mentorship and the coding competition itself.

The TCJ has provided a forum where educators can engage each other about concerns in the delivery of software development education in the country. Prior to TCJ there was no context for this kind of interaction, however today it is a more common occurrence not only within the context of the TCJ, but acorss other events and initiatives.
