Development Copilot, Competitor, Video Game Enthusiast
“Fail early, fail often, but always fail forward”
Honghao came to the Topcoder community when he was still a third-year college student in 2009. Originally he was an SRM guy but changed his focus to more of a development competitor since 2013. Honghao was intermittently competing until 2015, the year he graduated as a Ph.D., and since then he has become fully active on Topcoder and experienced different roles such as working as a competitor, reviewer, copilot, and a MVP nowadays.
Besides Topcoder, Honghao is a game developer and working for a game company. If you need him, you can easily find him in Slack, email, and the forums, but the best way might be through the chat lobby of a video game!
Fun fact: The best benefit of working for a game company is you can feel free to play games during work time.
