Concourse 2018 Year in Review
2018 has been an action-packed year for us. We saw a major release (Concourse 4.0.0) with a lot of new features: new auth connectors and users, dashboard, distributed GC and other runtime improvements. At the same time our team grew from 3 engineering pairs at the start of 2018 to 8 engineering pairs and an additional PM (👋 Scott Foerster) working on Concourse OSS and supporting Concourse for PCF.
By the Numbers
- 13 releases of Concourse
- 1 TLD snafu leading to our domain change
- 1 new website design
- 2 new ways to contact us (Discord, Discuss)
- 1,070 members on Concourse Discord, 45 members in #contributors
- 937 new GitHub issues created in 2018. Given th at only 1,694 issues were opened prior to 2018, I’d say that’s a pretty big jump in activity!
- 417 PRs, up by 15% from last year
- 3,300 stars, up by 38% from last year
