How did you get to where you are today at Topcoder?

Staying involved with challenges without giving up made my path so far. It was not easy, but one should always work with the same enthusiasm until the end of the competition especially in the QA track.

What is your best strategy for tackling a project or challenge?

Studying all the details on the challenges and staying involved in the challenge actively until the end of it is the best way to learn about it and overcome any difficulties in a challenge.

How do you keep up with current trends and advances in this field?

I read a lot of blogs, articles and attend conferences and seminars.

What are you most looking forward to for the TCO Finals?

To meet the other finalists and the members I have worked with in person.

Being selected as a finalist in TCO18 is the most prominent achievement.
