Yes, you read it right: today the PrestaShop Community passed the one-million-member mark! For the past 9 years, our community has been growing and supporting the PrestaShop adventure. Let’s take a look at how we got this far together!
We spent the last several weeks digging through our archives, looking at our top contributors’ stats, and giggling at old photos. Did you know, for example, that Bruno was only 23 when he founded PrestaShop?! In fact, most of the team members were in their early 20’s… (Stay tuned for a Throwback Thursday article!)
It’s no secret that PrestaShop is where it is today because of our incredible Open-source community: together we’ve released a ton of products, held numerous events, and welcomed so many contributions from incredible contributors around the world.
To really get a sense of what we’ve accomplished together, we created a timeline of our Community’s history going back to 2007 and identified 40 of our most committed contributors who hail from 24 countries. They’re either Forum Superstars, GitHub Legends, Translation Gurus or Addons Masters, and they’ve all had an impact on the Community’s development.
Take a stroll with Preston as he walks--or, rather, flies--down memory lane and meet these exceptional members along the way.
Stay tuned for more articles as we:
- Introduce you to our 40 historic members (March 22nd)
- Present our millionth member (March 29th)
- Host a very special Throwback Thursday (March 31st)
- Explain why Open-source is so powerful (April 5th)
For a chance to receive a super-exclusive-ultra-limited edition T-shirt (for real - we’ve only got 10!), download this poster, take an epic snapshot with it and share it on Twitter with #WeAre1Million and tag @PrestaShop. Who knows, you just might be a winner! :-)
We hope you enjoy our little stroll down memory lane. Now let’s get ready to welcome the 2,000,000th member!
We ❤ you!
