Noah Alarwu, a software engineer and the co-founder of PyCon Africa, has won the Python Software Foundation (PSF) Community Service Award for the second quarter in 2020.
He was recognised for his contributions to the growth of the Python Ghana Community and his role as an executive member of Pycon Africa. He also won the PSF Community Service Award for organising Django Girls workshop to help bridge the gender gap of tech in Ghana.
Noah Alorwu made significant strikes in African tech by playing a vital role in the organisation of the maiden PyCon Africa in Accra and chairing the talk committee. As one of the founders of DjangoCon Africa, he was also a speaker at several Python conferences — one of such being the DjangoCon Europe.
