Hacker Noon Awards: #Noonies 2019—Full Nominees List

Author profile picture

@natashaNatasha Nel

👋 I'm the Managing Editor of This Site. I make podcasts & write stories — about Amsterdam, mostly.

The world’s most independent tech publication, Hacker Noon—where hackers start their afternoons, just partnered with Stream.io to present the inaugural Noonies 2019: The Tech Industry's Greenest Awards. 

"The Noonies! It’s time to vote on what matters in tech. Year after year these will serve as the definitive, international and somewhat democratic acknowledgement of all the best and worst people and/or products in technology today," someone overheard CEO David Smooke saying in an All-Hands meeting on Zoom recently.

Divided across Hacker Noon’s three editorial categories—General Technology, Crypto and Blockchain, and Software Development, the first annual #Noonies aims to be a public recognition of both the contributing writers, community members, and readers who make Hacker Noon the best place for tech professionals to publish; as well as a great forum for all of us to up and/or downvote the brands, products and apps we use to build things every day.

Scroll down for the full list of 50 #Noonies awards and 300+ nominees > click through to upvote your favourites!

You can VOTE EVERY DAY FROM TODAY until August 16th, so go ahead and set a reminder to exercise your daily right to declare the best and worst of the world's technology industry.

For the first week of voting, public award nominations remain open. Please note, your custom nominations are subject to review before being added. All Noonies 2019 Award Winners will be announced on August 21st.
