INTERVIEW

What does Topcoder mean to you?


What is your greatest career accomplishment to date?

It is hard to tell, but I am proud of finding energy to compete after so many years 🙂


What are you hobbies besides Topcoder?

I like to play tennis and soccer, and enjoy travelling with my wife and kids.


What is your best tip for a new Topcoder member just starting out?

Topcoder level of competition is very high.

From my personal experience, I can say that it might be frightening at the beginning, but with time and practice, nothing is impossible!


Tell us your Topcoder story.

I started a long time ago (2003).
I reached my first onsite event in 2007 (Algorithm).
After that, I focused in Marathon track, and managed to advance to 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
So far, my best result was a 3rd place in 2012.
Hope I can improve this year 🙂
