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

Joseph Chukwube from Nigeria has been nominated for a 2020
Noonie in the Future Heroes and Technology categories. 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 Joseph had to share.

1. Which 2020 Noonie have you been nominated for?

  • Hacker Noon Contributor of the Year - AUGMENTED REALITY
  • Security Advocate of the Year
  • Hacker Noon Contributor of the Year - IoT

2. Tell us a bit about yourself.

I'm a professional digital marketer; the founder of Digitage.net, a digital marketing agency. I'm highly enthusiastic about all things business and technology, and I share informative resources to help businesses and consumers stay informed, safer, and smarter online.

3. Tell us about the things you make / write / manage / build.

I write about tech trends such as AR/VR and IoT, share cybersecurity tips and measures, and I discuss business strategies and solutions.

6. What's the most useful advice you've ever given somebody?

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing properly!

7. How has the pandemic changed your life and/or career?

The pandemic enabled me to take a deep self-reflection, overcome old weaknesses, and discover new strengths and new ways to get things done. I learned to diversify and learn a new hustle (Forex Trading) and I couldn't be happier.

Real Estate

9. What's an opinion you have that most people don't agree with?

I can't think of any.

The tech space and the innovations around AR/VR in regards to adapting to the new normal.

11. Which apps can't you live without?

LinkedIn, Skype

13. What are you currently learning?

Forex Trading

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 an influencer 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.
