The whetstone of coding skill
Sports, playing with my kids
I participated in Topcoder algorithm contests when I realized writing “Hello world” code was really not fun. After that I tried component development challenges and the first time I won second place with a $250 prize while my wife was waiting in the delivery room (shouting? Of course).
I never thought I could finish and win assembly challenges until I finished the 3 steps I just suggested in the previous question.
It was really challenging but fantastic experience.
