What is your Topcoder story?

I heard about Topcoder back when I was 11 from a friend of mine. At that time I used Pascal as my primary language, but I had to learn C++ to take part in Topcoder SRMs — it was fun! I'd always dreamed of coming to the TCO final round, but only managed to come in 2013 for the first time, and now it's my 4th TCO in a row.

Why Topcoder?

For me Topcoder is a great source of interesting problems and endless competition. I've been here for more than 10 years already, and there's absolutely no reason to give up — I'm still enjoying every single bit of Topcoder!

Tell us about something in your life, outside of Topcoder, that you are most proud of.

Being able to fight till the very end.
