July 16, 2019 Topcoder – A Community For All
The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.– Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web
Topcoder is first and foremost a community. Our community has members from over 190 countries, countless languages, cultures, ages, race, and more.
We pride ourselves in being community first. We want Topcoder to be a place where anyone with talent can make a living, learning something new, and have fun. Beyond a digital workplace for gig workers, Topcoder is a network of people who are living their dreams every day. There should be no obstacle for people who want to live the Topcoder lifestyle.
At Topcoder, we are proud to announce that we are working with our community to make Topcoder accessible for all. This is a huge initiative that we are prioritizing for our Topcoder platform.
In the coming weeks and months, you’ll see many challenges popping up to help us integrate Accessibility standards across our platform, as well as some challenges for customers. I think it’s important that we all come together and help create an inclusive platform for all.
Please take a minute to check out our challenge listings page. Our QA challenges and offering is on fire lately and it’s definitely a great track for someone new to Topcoder. Help us test our site and others’, for a better experience at Topcoder for all. If you want to fill out our survey for more info, please go here.
Our Accessibility challenges are open to all!
