In my life I’ve heard fascinating stories about brothers rivalry, like Cain and Abel, Liam and Noel Gallagher or Serena and Venus Williams, but today I learnt another one which is special to me because it happens in the Topcoder community, the legacy of [leo.ananth] and [selvaa89], two Indian brothers who compete in Topcoder. They’re…


The big day has finally arrived – the development finals at TCO16 got underway a few minutes back. The problem statement seems fascinating and it will be interesting to see how the various competitors approach it.

It happened to me that I started thinking about this awkwardly introduced topic while I was seeing an old TCO picture that triggered…


The two passions in my life are – programming & sports. Unsurprisingly, there’s a strong competitive element to both of these. Over the last few years, I’ve had the opportunity to attend some (and speak at a few) of the biggest technology conferences in the world including Apple’s WWDC, Dreamforce, Droidcon and several others. As for being…
