*HackerNoon is also a huge, global team of over 45,000+ writers, founders, makers, thinkers and technologists, plus over 4 Million monthly readers, but unfortunately we didn’t have space to feature them all here.

The HackerNoon Community
The Greenest Place for Hackers to Hang Out
& Get Published
HackerNoon is where hackers start their afternoons. We’re talking diehards; lurkers; script kiddies; hats all the way through white, grey, green, blue, red and black; plus a few plain old Tim Ferriss fanboy #LifeHackers - the full spectrum, you’ll find ’em here. HackerNoon is a close-knit community for cat people and single dads who code. A safe place for power women in tech and misunderstood millennials. For gross teenagers and curious retirees. For hodlrs, venture capitalists and anarchists. For entrepreneurs and engineers. For philosophers, product managers, and futurists.
In short, HackerNoon has space for everybody. There is only one rule of engagement: We treat our internet friends with respect.
HackerNoon is also on pretty much every social media platform ever invented—so find us where you like to be by searching @hackernoon. Or come hang out with us via slogging.
Here are some nice things our friends have said about us on the socials
