6 Mar 2024

Hey there, Hackers!

As some of you may know, we recently launched abrand new ranking system for the top writers in each Tech Category on HackerNoon. To give you the low down on what this is all about, every week, our ranking system will refresh the numbers and showcase the top 10 most prolific writers for all 22 parent categories on the website.

The more you write and get published, the higher your ranking and the more you can show off to your friends and family (please do; you’ve earned it!). To that end, we would also like to show you off! Today, we’re giving a shoutout to last week’s top 10 code wizards over in the Programming category who are serving up killer guides, unique angles, and helping us untangle all that spaghetti code. Here we go:
