I’ve been nominated in the 2020 #Noonies, Hacker Noon’s annual awards! 🎉

The Noonies are HackerNoon’s way of recognizing the tech industry’s top writers, thinkers, leaders, and makers (more info here)

What does “Noonies” mean? 🤔

Once an hour every hour, it’s Noon somewhere 🙂 Think Dundies — but for technology. Every year Hackernoon organizes awards called Noonies. Their aim is to reward unappreciated corners of the internet.

There are 200+ Noonies Titles up for grabs this year, across five major categories: technology, decentralization, software development, future heroes, and back to the internet.

Hackernoon 🌟

HackerNoon is a publication having 4,000,000 monthly readers and 12,000+ writers, founders, makers, thinkers, and technologists(including me). The best part is writers can publish free high-quality tech stories — without paywalls, pop-up ads, or a sense of entitlement!


It’s open from 13th Aug 2020 to 12th Oct 2020 ⌛️
