    BREAKING: Hacker Noon’s 2020 Noonies Awards Launches TODAY at noonies.tech

    Join Hacker Noon’s Managing Editor, Natasha Nel, for a quick briefing on this year’s biggest, greenest and most independent tech industry awards: Hacker Noon’s prestigious #Noonies. 
    .
    The 2020 #Noonies are made possible by Amplify Brokerage, the world’s first global zero trading fee cryptocurrency trading platform. GET STARTED: https://bit.ly/2O9xrzJ 
    . The original Noonies was conceptualized in early 2019, mostly as a ploy to distract our community from how many things were wrong with the site when we first moved off Medium in July of that same year. It turned into something bigger than we at Hacker Noon could’ve ever imagined. .This year, we’ve 10x’d the thing (sorry - touchy phrase in tech these days, I know) and the New Noonies includes two new award categories, and over 100 new award titles. In this quick listen, Natasha runs you through this year’s Noonies selection process; a few of her favourite awards, and how nominations and voting will work this year. Enjoy!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cool to hear the team. Have been publishing stories on Hacker Noon for a few years. Great to see and hear the actual voices of the team. Utsav, Natasha, Linh, David - see you back on the internet!

Rodney McKeown ,

Good

As an immigrant, loved hearing more of Linh's story, but overall the feed is little too crypto centric.

Laendra11 ,

Great!

Juan Benet interview was great. Surprised how humble he is - and how willing he is to explain and breakdown how complex things work.
