What is your Topcoder story?

I accidentally found Topcoder while reading an a Quora answer. The first time I joined Topcoder, I knew nothing about UI/UX Design. With a fixed mindset to believe "fake it till you make it", has had a large effect on my performance & results.

With some help & guidance from folks like (Copilots) Dedy, Fajar and Master Yoki (designer), now I'm really having fun at Topcoder.

Why Topcoder?

It's fun & addictive. It's not like any other crowdsourcing contest. At Topcoder, I don't really feel like I compete with other designers. It feels more like we play together, communicate, and collaborate working on client's projects.

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

Two times I dropped out of college and I resigned from my last job to chase my passion in UI/UX design at Topcoder.


We asked our finalists to play the word association game. We gave them a word and they gave us the first word that popped into their head.
