    Hi @Arjunultra,

    First of all, Welcome to the Topcoder Community :)

    Having a knowledge of HTML and CSS is a great start if you want to be serious in web development world. However, you will need to step up your game a little bit, other essential knowledge that you need to know in web development is a javascript skill. Along with that, try and learn various aspect of web development like javascript framework (react, angular, etc) or css framework bootstrap, and other trends in web development.

    You can also learn about skills for web development from our THRIVE platform: https://www.topcoder.com/thrive or from our youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/TopcoderOfficial, and filter it for web development learning content.

    Our community also have a lot of talented web developer members that you can reach out, just post your questions in the forum and they will help to clear out your doubts.

    Explore and start your journey as web developer with Topcoder, and don't hesitate to ask any questions if you have one, thank you.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Fajar,

    I have fond memories of Topcoder and winning Marathon Match 42 "Flocking Behavior" on 15 October 2008.


    As you can see I was the winner in the final evaluation.

    Unfortunately today I was disappointed to see the following:


    It seems the provisional leader board has replaced the final leader board.

    Here is further evidence of my rating progression and re-confirmation of my 1st place:


    Kindly advise whether you can re-instate the accurate historic record for MM 42.

    Thank you

    Hi @rajumoses

    We have a lot of gigs that pay that amount of money in our gig work page, but in order to get/landed that particular of gig work, you will need to master/or have advance skills in particular technology, I think there are tons of gigs that pay the amount of money you're mentioned.

    For example, check out our two top gig works right now:

    Now, how good are you and what kind of skills that you already mastered? One way to landed that gig work is to show your skills to us, either by providing great portfolio record when applying to particular gig, or show it directly by participating in our challenges and show a good track record in our competition platform for the required specific skills.

    There is no shortcut to get the gig work, but if you have the skills needed for the gigs and also trustworthy, it will be very easy for you to get/landed the gig work.

    Let us know more if you have any questions, thank you.

    Best Regards,

    To access a submission of a concluded challenge you will need to be a submitter in that challenge with a passing score. There is no other way to access submissions of a challenge, unless one is a copilot or reviewer in that challenge.

    hi @jmpld40


    using the above mentione article I'm able to understand JWT more easier than other stuff on the web..
    really thankful for the following resource..

    I've on question regarding /hiddencontent route which is mentioned in the above article..
    while I'm providing header with Authorization and admin token like JWT [JWT_TOKEN] buth the issue here is that the logic is not working for the given token..

    here is my code..

    const express = require("express");
    const { register, login, verifyemail } = require("../controllers/auth.controller.js");
    const verifyToken = require("../middlewares/authJWT.js");
    const user = require("../models/user");
    const router = express.Router();




    router.get("/hiddencontent", verifyToken, (req, res) => {
    if (!user) {
    message: "Invalid JWT token",
    if (req.user == "admin") {
    message: "Congratulations! but there is no hidden content",
    } else {
    message: "Unauthorised access", // it is always comes in this section while authorization part

    module.exports = router;

    can anyone help me out in this part..

    Hi @Padmini_Devi

    Thank you for posting your question!

    All gigs you have applied to are now cancelled or Unfortunately your profile was not a match hence the phone screening is not scheduled.

    Please keep applying to gigs which match your skills and interest here !

    You can reach out to gigwork@topcoder.com for more queries!

    Hi, I'm new here and I was wondering about our profile pages, specifically the rating-history: For some Tracks/Challenge Types one sees the events people took part in and all the occasions where they changed their rating - and for others one sees nothing? Just seems very strange....
    Are there any rules, about what challenge types appear and which don't ? Or is there a button to turn visibility on and off?
