Designers – are you ready to race to the finish? We’re excited to announce the introduction of First2Finish (F2F) challenges in the [topcoder] Design track.
Want to flex your design muscles just before turning in for the night? Do you have some time between classes? Or maybe you just enjoy smaller challenges or want to practice your skills. Our F2F challenges will get your creative juices flowing.
Here’s how it works:
1. The challenge is posted and visible along with all other open challenges here
2. You will register for the challenge, download inputs, participate in forums, and submit your entries just like any other Design challenge.
3. The challenge holder can review submissions as soon as they are uploaded. They will evaluate the entries and have the ability to designate a winner and close the challenge at any time! This means you’ll need to be quick to submit, but you also need to fulfill the requirements if you want any chance of being chosen as the winner.
F2F will not have checkpoint rounds because the design problems are small and meant to have a simple solution. However, the winner may still go through Final Fixes if needed.
So grab a F2F Design challenge and give it a try! And, as always, let us know what you think.
