It’s official! The 2016 Topcoder Open has officially kicked off!

Today we launch four competition tracks giving you the chance to earn TCO16 points, including F2F, which we’re bringing back!

Tracks include:

First2Finish (F2F)

UI Design

UI Prototype

In the coming months, we’ll be announcing the details of the Algorithm and Marathon Competitions as well.

This year, there were lots of changes introduced to TCO and one of the most successful changes was the addition of the Regional Events. Following the positive feedback from each of those events we’ve run so far, we’ll be doing something similar with TCO16. We also want to give you a chance to host your own regional event! So check that out here if you’re interested.

We look forward to announcing Regional Events as they are finalized.

Finally, one of the things we know you are going to want to get more details on is the TCO16 Finals. Our team is hard at work putting the finishing touches on the where, when, and what for the onsite event and we can’t wait to announce it! For TCO16 we plan to incorporate all competition tracks at the main onsite event in the USA and we’re hoping to have onsite competitions for each as well.

For now, get started earning TCO16 points (and designers get going on the TCO16 logo!) and stay tuned for many more surprises we have in store for you over in the near future. Best of luck everyone!
