We are already full throttle in 2018, but still wanted to briefly look back how we made it through 2017. And as far as all the events, conferences, and contests, 2017 was a fantastic year for Vaadin. We have moved to the new website, pushed out three versions of Vaadin 8 and a sneak preview of the upcoming Vaadin 10 platform. This is something that is also clearly visible in the Top 5 blog posts of 2017:

  1. Vaadin Framework 8 is out!

  2. Vaadin Flow - the next piece of Vaadin 10 is now in developer preview

  3. Lazy loading with Vaadin 8

  4. How to bind your form to your domain model – the Vaadin 8 style

  5. Migrating to Vaadin 10

So, is that all? Not by a long shot! Here are some numbers on how the whole community has worked together to build and made Vaadin more popular than ever. A humble thank you goes to all who made a pull request, reported bugs, wrote documentation or otherwise contributed to Vaadin development. This is what motivates us.
