Has Topcoder changed your life? If so, how?

Not yet (maybe TCO will make a difference?).

Do you have a favorite Topcoder customer or project? If so, which customer or project?

That would be heavywater, where I had the opportunity to learn angular2.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you within the Topcoder community?

Winning a short F2F after 15 minutes of being posted, appears to entertain me a bit.

Best music album to code to?

I have no specific album I'm listening to, just random youtube suggestions.

Who is your favorite copilot and why (and you can't pick yourself!)?

I've had a pretty good collaboration with callmekatootie.

What is your favorite developer language or front end technology and why?

RxJS, I'm still making my way in mastering it, but I like the concepts it adds to programming.

We asked the Finalists to use emojis in response to the following questions.
