With the year 2015 shutting its door on us it’s once again time to look back at the year that has passed and what we’ve accomplished.
Year 2015 was a year of firsts for Vaadin as a company: We reached $10M in turnover for the first year, we crossed the 100 employees line for the first time and we opened our first office in Berlin. We also started our journey outside Java for the first time, by announcing Vaadin Elements. When you realize Vaadin as a company and a technology dates back as far as 2001, these are all really big accomplishments for one year alone.
With over 46 releases by several teams in close to 7000 commits the past year has been the busiest at Vaadin so far. We’ve published over 90 blogposts and attended 65 events, not to mention hosted 3 large events ourselves. We've also covered content from Spring to Liferay and to Scalability and everything in between. But Vaadin is not only about us, in fact, we’re just a small minority of the Vaadin community of 150 000 developers. You’ve made Vaadin what it is today: You have updated over 230 addons, written close to 14 000 forum posts, over 600 of you have become certified and you’ve started hosting your own meetups around the world.
Welcome 2016 – we’re ready!
P.S. I’ll just leave this video here…
