Not sure if its just my experience, but the Topcoder website seems to be a jumbled mess. With multiple was to sign up, which don't seem to be compatible, and several different skinning for the pages, depending on how you arrived at it. Let alone the sign up methods have different password rules, and even when submitting there are multiple ways to submit which have different upload restrictions. It was a fun little challenge i used to learn goji with, but wow that site is frustrating.
My colleagues and I at X PRIZE Foundation have used TopCoder, and have found, like everyone else, that TopCoder’s global community of more than 450,000 technology and design specialists can find solutions to a wide range of problems at a fraction of the cost and time.
