Frankly the numbers for the challenge were astonishing! Out of the 382 registrants for our 1st contest, 329 were brand new members. Meaning they registered for [topcoder] on or after 03/10/14, when we announced the challenge. Absolutely incredible!
In total, we received a 24 submissions with the top 5 winners (in order of placement) from:
- United States
- United Kingdom
This is very exciting for us and we’re very thankful to our partners at the NASA Tournament Lab & Planetary Resources, Inc. for helping to get the word out.
We’ve also recently deployed something pretty cool (and time consuming!), go to topcoder.com/asteroids and after the page loads, on your keyboard, type: asteroids
Sit back and be prepared to be amazed.
