As of today*, it’s been four years of Discourse!
It feels like only only yesterday that we launched Discourse as an open source project. We’ve certainly been busy for the last four years:
1 official non-beta release of Discourse
7 total releases of Discourse, currently on 1.8 beta
~600 hosted customers
~8000 public installations of Discourse on the Internet
21837 commits, 560 contributors, 20541 stars on our open source code at GitHub
17500 topics, 245000 replies, 24000 users on meta.discourse.org
I’m happy to announce that in our fourth year, we’ve just added two team members:
@falco aka Rafael dos Santos Silva from Brazil
@oblakeerickson aka wait for it.. O. Blake Erickson from Idaho, USA
This brings the total Discourse team size up from 9 to 11 souls.
Where do we go from here? Everywhere! Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
More Discourses, more features, more plugins, more integrations. Maybe throw a few new Emoji in there for good measure while we’re at it. And all of it, always, 100% free and open source for you, forever.
* OK technically yesterday but come on that was a Sunday!
