If you’re an up and coming programmer or want to become a professional software developer, being a part of the Topcoder community has immense value. Attending this event gives you networking opportunities for a potential job or internship. Did you know some of the top tech companies encourage their applicants to get a Topcoder rating or at least share their rating during job interviews.
