October 2017: GitHub Development Winners

The 7th month of our GitHub Development Bounty has successfully ended. Thanks to all of the community developers that keep on contributing to the improvement of the ARK codebase! We are also welcoming our newest contributors that started pitching in this October — there were more than 15 community developers contributing to the ARK code.

We at ARK are thrilled with how great and diversified our community is! Developers are increasing in both numbers and talent. We know their great efforts will continue with ever increasing complexity and of course, cool new ideas.

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 November till 30th of November will count towards November.
