    Topcoder is the best place to learn from the best of the best designers, also it could help you financially if you are really enthusiastic about learning Interaction design. And you’d have great flexibility to work from anywhere you want. And the best part, you meet like-minded people (Designers) and could make friends for life.

    Being part of this great community can be considered as an achievement already. I was surprised and inspired when I saw my handle as top 4th performer for Design. My biggest achievement on Topcoder I think are the portfolio and experience I earned working for the biggest names and companies in the world.

    Learn something new everyday. Doesn’t matter if is a design technique, or a new tool/software, or new concepts, just try something new everyday.
