Software development has progressed over the years, making it possible for individuals to contribute to the codebase of some of their favourite companies. Open-source has helped companies improve and also fix certain issues because of the community of open-source developers who contribute daily to their code. 

Flutterwave has benefited greatly from different software developers who have contributed to our codebase over the years. This year, we decided to publicly appreciate some of these developers who have continually used their skills to make our platform better. Our Developer Experience team helped us select these awesome software developers who are from 2 continents and 3 countries.
