On Thursday, February 10th, Jack Hughes, founder and chairman of Top Coder, Inc., came and spoke to our Social Media Innovation class. The topic of Jack’s speech was ‘The Changing Nature of Work’ and was focused on how the Internet is changing how people work in the modern society. The theme of the speech explored how the Internet is making it possible for people all around the world to work together via the web in order to solve business-related problems. During his speech, Jack showed the class the Top Coder site and show the different ways users can get involved with the site.
The Top Coder site is made up by two different sections, Develop and Design. Develop is for users that are more interested in coding and programming, while Design is for users that are more interested in web or graphic design. I recently registered on the Top Coder Studio, which is the section of the site for Design. Since I don’t have any coding or programming experience, I figured Top Coder Studio was better for me since I have web development experience. I will keep an eye out for any interesting contests post on Top Coder Studios. Hopefully my experience with Top Coder can lend itself well to my future career.
