Is it ethical to post my TopCoder solutions to my blog? [closed]
I recently joined TopCoder and have been solving a few problems on the site. Now, I want to publicly post my solutions onto my blog and have others go over it, suggest improvements, better design, etc. wherever applicable. Would this be ethical?

3)Suggestion: Solutions are already public. You can see other people's solutions in the practice rooms. I don't see why you shouldn't post yours on your blog too.
I would highly recommend reading the solutions of some highly rated contestants, if you would like to learn how to write short and clear solutions. Those guys usually have a good mental model of what they are doing.

4)Suggestion: I'd say, it really depends on what you're doing - in an active contest this would'nt be a nice thing to do - especially when there is an explicit "rule":
Contestants must not cheat; all ideas for any code and/or challenge submitted must be the contestant's alone.
1)Suggestion: It's un-ethical if you have an NDA in place, otherwise go nuts.

2)Suggestion: I honestly don't see the problem. As long as it is your code, are not being paid (I'm talking privacy agreements/intellectual property clauses with a client for this), and you are aiming to help others learn from it, I cannot see the harm.

  1. I'm writing to inform you that I'm extremely disappointed after having received my rolex replica sale order. I got the Rolex replica watch about three weeks ago. A couple days after wearing it, I noticed that the hublot replica is out of sink. It moves faster than the minute hand, so the result is that it's always telling the wrong time, which is annoying because I continue to have to reset the tag heuer replica. What good is a watch that doesn't tell the right time. At this point, I've just left it on my rolex replica. I'm sad to have wasted $150 on something that doesn't work. Myself purchased this breitling replica several weeks ago. From the word go there has been problems with the winder. After a couple of weeks the winder completely came out. I took it to a Watchmaker & he refused to touch it. He informed me he should inform replica watches uk.

  2. The Fake Rolex Watches is one of the first Rolex Watches timepieces that have enjoyed their very own in-house Rolex Watches movement. Besides this Hermes handbags , it is also one of the few classic aviator Hermes Handbags that are still very popular on the market.
