I work on Topcoder software challenges as my full time job, and the platform gives me great flexibility in work time and technology paradigm, and it helps me broaden my skill set a lot.
Competing in Topcoder is my full time job currently, and my greatest accomplishment in Topcoder is winning TCO software design track for two consecutive years.
I play with hobbyist robotics kit, and read a lot science fiction books.
To development community members: try harder and never give up.
I have been a Topcoder member for a decade, since my senior year at college. I competed in most software development tracks and my favorite is software architecture. I've been TCO software design champion for two consecutive years, and now I'm primarily trying software assembly track.
