Since Algorand Foundation launched its Development Awards Program last year, many developers around the world have been eager to participate. After thorough review and selection, Riley Ge from China became one of the first developers to receive the award.
Riley Ge's winning project is called “dotnet-algorand-sdk”. “I wanted to use it to solve the problem of .NET accessing Algorand network,” said Riley. “Literally, it is an Algorand-based .NET SDK that extends functionality and simplifies development; it is also able to provide great support for other developers to accelerate their development.”
As a structural engineer, Riley Ge works for a construction company in Qingdao, China. He has always shown a strong interest in programming, though his daily job has nothing to do with it. Riley started coding in the university and has gained nearly 15 years of development experience. Additionally, he teaches children to use Python for programming during his spare time.
Riley indicated that he was honored to receive the award, “I really appreciate that Algorand Foundation actually liked my idea. Here is something I want to share with those developers who haven’t participated in this program: please don’t hesitate to join us and learn more about Algorand, and I'm sure you'll love Algorand as much as I do, and be willing to make a difference.”
