Our Winners

We received a huge number of nominations, with so many inspiring developers in the mix. And from our shortlist, you chose four groundbreaking developers who've brought the future that bit closer to us all.

Our Groundbreaker Award winners will be sharing their stories on stage at Oracle Code One in New York on May 21, 2019.

 

Meet the 2018 Groundbreakers

Be inspired by last year's Groundbreaker Award winners. These digital pioneers triumphed thanks to their unrivalled talent and exceptional breakthroughs in code. And their work has paved the way for groundbreakers everywhere.

On the Coding Path

Breakthroughs happen everywhere all the time. We set out to find inspiration from groundbreakers who’ve cracked the uncrackable, coding pioneers like you—and like us—with (sometimes tall) tales to tell about the changing trends in development.
