How has Topcoder changed your life?
Topcoder is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It has changed my life in many aspects, like it helped me achieve my personal goals and I wouldn't have learned better about interaction design if I hadn't met this incredible community.
Do you have a favorite Topcoder customer or project? If so, which customer or project?
I love all of them!
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you within the Topcoder community?
Getting lost on the roads of Washington DC during last year TCO16 event with [Mahestro] and [Darak] was just amazing and an unforgettable moment. We were laughing so hard cracking jokes through out the walk trying to figure out the path to the hotel without using google maps 😀 Also, we boarded the wrong bus at NYC, and entered a wrong Uber cab too later haha 😀
