Giving an award is one of the good ways to appreciate someone’s work. So, to appreciate some people who have contributed to the tech industry growth in Indonesia, Dicoding has presented an award called Dicoding Awards.
Dicoding is the biggest portal for Indonesian tech developers and communities, including games. Dicoding has several programs, ranging from small programs such as e-learning program (called Academy) to big program such as events like BEKRAF Developer Conference. All of these programs aim to level up developers’ skill and build the community.
