For the first time ever, our TCO Regional Events will encompass and have attendees from all the countries located in the Southern Asia region of the world.

Our world has definitely been turned upside down the last few weeks and months with the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping our globe. In keeping your health and safety as the most important thing in mind, we have decided that the Southern Asia Regionals will be held virtually this year and you will have an opportunity to compete and interact with attendees virtually.

We cherish these events as a way to get to know so many of you and build stronger relationships with the folks we work with at Topcoder every day and so we are excited to plan an engaging and interactive experience to all of you.

At this moment, the event is tentatively scheduled to take place virtually on August 16, 2020. Invitations to the finalists with all the details will be rolled out very soon.

Event Recap

The TCO20 Southern Asia Regional event was held on August 16th with amazing participation in each track of competition at Topcoder. We had a difficult time deciding on the schedule as we had to figure out how to allow members to pick and compete in multiple competitions according to their previous competition interests and opt-ins – Phew!

The event started at 9:30 AM IST and I got the opportunity to launch the event, as I have for the past six years…

When will I receive my event kit?

Once you fill your acceptance form with all the details, we will start working on shipping you your event kit.

My internet connection is very slow so how will I be a part of the games and events?

We think your internet connection should just be suitable to allow you to participate in Topcoder Contests. You can always watch the live sessions later as they will be recorded. In terms of networking opportunities, we will have some games hosted on the Slack Channel too so it will become easier for you to participate in those.

Can I experience the platform you are using to host all the events before the event?

Yes for sure, we will be running a demo event 2 days before the actual event to allow you to join in and experience the features of the platform.

How to Qualify

These exclusive events are invite-only meaning you have to win a ticket to attend. Members had to compete in Topcoder Challenges launched during TCO20 Stage 2 (January 2020 to March 2020) to earn TCO20 Points. Members are now invited to the event according to their placement on the regional leaderboard.
