Topcoder Members Talk TCO
TCO is one of the best programming and designing talent meetups in the world. Having been there as a participant as well as a visitor, it leaves me inspired and awestruck every time.”
It [TCO] is one of the best events I’ve ever attended as a designer. It will make you feel blessed, great, and proud to be one of the competitors competing with the best of the best around the world.”
TCO means many emotions to me. It implies excellence, it implies the golden and fiery passion of many very talented people being rewarded at the highest stage, with the highest rewards, and the highest payoff that is achievable to a developer. It means that do your best in life, and if your stars align with your hard work, you would get a ticket to this golden stage.”
TCO is freedom. A dream to see the best of the best.”
It [TCO] is my favorite event. It’s an opportunity to see the TC staff and the other competitors in person. I attended TCO twice and it feels like a Hollywood movie in which I get to take part.”
TCO is everything, I aim to be there every year. I will get there someday.”
