Register and submit for any TCO eligible
challenge. Win prizes and TCO points to
get you up on the leaderboards.
HOW IT WORKSEach competition for a certain time frame would enable you more opportunities to earn TCO points. At the end of the TCO stage, your total points could be high enough to earn you a spot in virtual TCO finals or additional prize money.
The TCO takes place online with points accumulation for Development and Design Tracks and online elimination-style rounds for the Data Science and Algorithm tracks. After all the competitions online are completed, the top performers from each track win prizes and compete in the Virtual TCO Finals.
TCO21 REGIONAL EVENTS
TCO also includes regional events around the world. The goal of these regional events is to bring the TCO to more Topcoder members.
Regional TCO events are held online including competitions with prizes (for example, a hackathon), networking opportunities, and fun.
TCO VIRTUAL FINALS
The TCO Virtual Finals brings great honor and excitement to those who qualify to attend. TCO Finalists enjoy being treated like VIPs and deserve all the recognition they get.
As a TCO Finalist, you get the opportunity to compete live, and become a Topcoder champion.
The Topcoder Open encompasses most of the competition tracks offered at Topcoder.
For the 2021 Topcoder Open, points are currently available for all competition tracks. You just need to check the challenge listings page and make sure it shows the TCO21 eligibility icon.
