The Tech Industry's Greenest Awards. Public Nominations Are Open. Voting Starts Aug 13.

Mehmet Sarica from United States has been nominated for a 2020 #Noonie in software development category.

The Noonies are Hacker Noon’s way of getting to know — from a community perspective —  what matters in tech today. So, we asked our Noonie Nominees to tell us. Here’s what Rohit had to share.

1. Tell us a bit about yourself.

My journey with programming started with a book that I found on the street in 8th grade. I'm programming ever since (for fun for the most part).
I tried teaching for about 5 years. It was the sweetest and toughest time of my professional career.

Currently, I'm working as a Software Engineer.

Experiment things in code and showing people what I did like a small kid

11. Which 2020 Noonie have you been nominated for?

For much the same reasons Hacker Noon decided not to put good ideas behind pop-ups or paywalls — nor abuse your personal data to target you with creepy ads — we also decided that you don’t have to be a #thinkfluencer or have 50k followers on Twitter to earn the recognition that comes with a 2020 Noonie Nomination.

Make somebody’s day and nominate them to be recognized in the internet’s most independent and community-driven awards: NOONIES.TECH.
