Topcoder for Veterans 101
Before you can compete in challenge, you need to sign up for Topcoder. It’s free and easy to get started right away. Once you complete your Topcoder registration, we will also ask you to verify that you are currently in the service or reserves, or have been honorably discharged.
The Types of Challenges
There are three main tracks: design, development, and data science. Whether you’re looking to design a landing page, solve a coding problem, or submit a winning algorithm, there’s a challenge for you.
With Topcoder, you get paid for winning challenges, not for hours worked. The reward varies for each challenge — from checkpoint to final round — but you’ll always know in advance of competing.
