Our Third Annual Design Month is Here and We are Pumped!

At Topcoder, the month of May is synonymous with Design. Because May = Design Month!

We started Design Month because we needed a way to get our designers excited about Topcoder, to have an opportunity to learn, and just have some fun too. Each year, Design Month gets bigger and better and also encompasses so many folks at Topcoder – on our team and in the community.

Let this blog post serve as a quick insight to all the fun stuff we have planned for you.
