What is your Topcoder story?
I got Topcoder while I was in search of a programming practicing site in 2009.
When I joined TC, I started to participate in java Component Development track to improve my experience, but unfortunately I could not win any challenges since the competition is very tough.
Then after six year since joining TC, I started to participate in the UI prototype track and then I won my first project. Now I'm full time TC member.
Two things, experience and money.
If you were in charge of Topcoder for the day, what rule would you institute?
I'd increase the timeline of the project.
