September 2017: GitHub Development Winners

We are celebrating a half year of the GitHub Development Bounty — thanks to all community developers, we are evolving at light-speed pace!

Our development community grew substantially this month, with a lot of new faces, and number of awesome pull requests is increasing almost daily now, which in turn means better software, a better user experience, better everything — we at ARK are truly blessed and grateful with a community such as you.

Please note that PRs count in month when they get merged and not when they are submitted for easier tracking. All PRs merged from 1st of October till 31st of October will count towards October, and following months will be similarly credited by our dev team.
