In 2001 Topcoder was launched by a brazen technologist who happened to be an avid chess player. His question: Could we create a transparent and reputable rating system for developers akin to the famous ranking method used in the world of Chess? And if so, could top developers be accessed on demand to make getting technology work done faster and easier? What was deemed a crazy idea in 2001 is now simply known as crowdsourcing.
What began as a community for coders focused on algorithms has grown into the world's top competitive technology community that spans the entire software development lifecycle. Top designers, top developers, and top algorithmists call Topcoder home along with passionate individuals from across the globe who come to Topcoder to gain new skills and learn from the best.
