Feb 2022 Development Newletter
Happy February Topcoders!
Hard to believe but we're already into the second month of 2022! Even if your new year resolutions aren’t going the way you thought, the one thing that does not require a new year commitment is: registering in Topcoder Skill Builder Challenges! Register, observe how things operate in the forum, and whenever you feel like, consider submitting!
Topcoder Skill-builders are a great way to learn any new technology and at the same time get acquainted with Topcoder challenges. To help you select a Topcoder Skill-builder to start with:
This AWS Athena Skill-builder challenge would be a great starting point, as there are more Athena challenges in the pipeline.
These PostgreSQL Skill-builders.
If you're into Java, these Java Skill-builders should also be pretty helpful for any developer looking to expand their skills in these widely-known technologies.
If you are a web developer familiar with popular front end frameworks, check out these cool Angular challenges.
If you'd like to gain some differential skills, as in something that would provide you a unique set of skills, consider joining one of these MuleSoft Skill-builder challenges!.
Our partners at MuleSoft also provide free training in their technologies to Topcoder members, which can be availed by registering through this Mulesoft Training Registration page. These skills should help in upcoming Mulesoft challenges and potentially gigs as well.
For developers interested in other technologies, such as Swift, Python, Node etc, keep an eye on the Topcoder Challenge listings page!
Once you've gained all the skills or if you're already skilled and familiar with Topcoder challenges, put them to use and win some TCO points! Topcoder Open is our premier event that is usually hosted in-person in the United States, and members can qualify by earning points by doing a good job in TCO-eligible challenges. To learn more about it, refer to TCO22 Development Track Homepage!
