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 it faster and easier for enterprises to get technology work done? What was deemed a wild idea in 2001 is now simply known as crowdsourcing.
We are over one million members strong—and growing faster than ever.
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 life cycle.
Top designers, developers, and algorithmists call Topcoder home, along with passionate individuals from around the globe who come to Topcoder to gain new skills and learn from the best.
