“We are excited to bring back the Noonies for the third year,” says David Smooke, HackerNoon Founder and CEO.

“Since starting the Noonies in early 2019, we’ve celebrated the contributions of over 2,500 people and products that we thought deserved to be nominated. This year, we’re hoping to reach even more technologists that are doing behind-the-scenes work for some of the most innovating technology today”


Some of this year’s Notable awards are:

“The Noonies is powered by our own voting software,” says Storm Farrell, Full-Stack Developer at Hacker Noon.

“HackerNoon is — and always has been — where hackers start their afternoons. We built the Noonies to reward and recognize some of the creators behind innovative technology, and to celebrate with the Hacker Noon community.”

HackerNoon weighs the community-based votes to further elevate the voice of our contributing writers and prevent spam. HackerNoon published writers will have their votes count as 10, authenticated visitors will have their vote count as 3, and unauthenticated visitors will have their vote count as 1.

“We’re thrilled to be associated with Hackernoon, and their goal of creating the best platform on the internet for tech professionals to get published,” said Suman Das, Sr. Director of Brand Operations, Radix FZC, the registry that operates Dottech Domains.


“The Noonies.tech awards speak directly to our love for all things Tech and perfectly align with our mission of building a thriving and inclusive tech community online. Best of luck to all the nominees!”
