2017 in Review – How Do You Measure Community?
With community being the focus, as 2017 draws to a close, it’s fun to look back and celebrate the great contributions that all of you have made. Many investments of sleepless nights coding, brilliant ideas, time, technology, and money by collective people and organizations. Too many to count…so thank you!
Some data to illustrate these investments — 2016 concluded with 4 open source projects apart of the CNCF, 2017 wraps with 14 incredible technologies and over 160 organizations, all striving to improve how applications can be developed and managed. The number of Kubernetes authors has more than doubled, to 2,380 contributors in 2017, with authors for all other CNCF projects nearly tripling over the past year, now up to 1,415. Meetups discussing Cloud Native things have also exceeded 120 groups that include over 47,000 members.
This is what community in action looks like, and we are excited to continue solving new problems, on this journey together in 2018.
