November 2017: GitHub Development Winners

The 8th month of our GitHub Development Bounty has ended. Thanks to all the community developers that keep on improving ARK by submitting your Pull-Requests. We’ve seen developers submitting Pull Requests on a variety of repositories, this proves we have a highly skilled group of community developers (more than 15 community developers in November got at least 1 PR merged).

Please note that PRs count in the month when they get merged and not when they are submitted (for easier tracking). All PRs merged from 1st of December till 31st of December will count towards December GitHub winners.

November 2017 Winners:

This month’s 1st prize goes to Jolan Beer. He provided us with 3 new API integrations — Pythark, Ark-Elixir and LuARK + a few examples using all of the mentioned APIs, which only seems fitting to get 1st prize for the month of November. Thank you for your continued development and keep up the good work.
