2019 was a fantastic year for contributions and community involvement. During the year our contributors created over 8,000 pull requests across Magento GitHub repositories! Even more exciting is that over 8,500 were processed, meaning we made a significant dent in the backlog! We would like to extend a big thank you to all our contributors, maintainers and partners that did awesomework constantly iterating on Magento projects. We want to take some time and make some space in this post to look back at 2019 and highlight the amazing achievements of the community.
As a follow-up to the Squashtoberfest 2019 event we described a little while back, we wanted to share with everyone the list of our awesome contributors and winners from the event! We saw a ton of activity during October and are extremely grateful for everyone who contributed. A select number of you really went above and beyond and as a thank you we want to make and send you a limited-edition T-shirt commemorating the event and showing our gratitude.
Contributions to Magento Open Source or Magento Commerce are a powerful and effective way to strengthen the wider Magento community. Magento community involvement leads to the continuous improvement of the Magento framework; keeping it up to date with the latest development tools and best practices. We are grateful to all who participate in community projects to expand platform features and support the global community who use Magento.
We wanted to let all open source software enthusiasts know that we will be running our annual Squashtoberfest event during the entire month of October. Every year in October open source communities around the world get together to collaborate and contribute to their favorite projects. For the pasttwo years, contributors to Magento projects during October have had a chance to win some cool swag from us based on their contributions.
