Hacker Noon is where hackers start their afternoons. We’re talking diehardslurkersscript kiddieshats 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. Hacker Noon 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 hodlrsventure capitalistsand anarchists. For entrepreneurs and engineers. For philosophersproduct managers, and futurists

In short, Hacker Noon has space for everybody.

There is only one rule of engagement: We treat our internet friends with respect. 

Hacker Noon is also on pretty much every social media platform ever invented—so find us where you like to be—or come hang out at community.hackernoon.com.

Hacker Noon’s PartnersHelping Us KeepHacker NoonFree to Read, Forever

The internet is our generation’s greatest invention. We think it works  better without paywalls, pop-ups, or the abuse of data. 

Whether it’s a Newsletter Sponsorship, taking over Hacker Noon’s Site-Wide Top Navigation Banner for awhile, or buying credits to publish brand as author posts, these are the #GoodCompanies currently helping us keep the lights on Hacker Noon. Plus, we’re experimenting with Web Monetization 🙂Hacker Noon’s Tech StackThe Products thatPower Hacker Noon

We code our site from the feet up. In July 2019, we removed the Medium content management system from our site, and launched our own publishing platform. Overnight, Hacker Noon became not only a publishing company, but also a software company.​

We built (and continue to build) the Hacker Noon platform:

  • for readers to enjoy access to highest quality, evergreen and topical tech content—paywall and pop-up-free
  • for writers to elevate their own voices with the support of our team of human editors to review, improve, publish, and distribute their words online
  • for sponsors to make a positive and potentially profitable impression on tech’s most influential and innovative minds
  • for editors: coming soon 😉
