OMGoodness it’s May! Here’s the Textile April update.
We’ve fallen a couple of weeks behind in our monthly update but wanted to fire this off to ensure we don’t lose the cadence completely. April was a very busy month of building and growing. Here’s a rundown of some cool things that happened.
Our developer Slack channel has become a busy, busy place. With a few hundred developers regularly commenting, sharing, and building projects on and around the Textile stack. We’ve got team coordination tools, health data & communication tools, productivity tools and more being built in the open on our channel. It’s awesome.
4,000 Number of messages sent by developers on Slack in April
There were a few open source contributors, thanks to all of you! We want to highlight one contributor each month though, and so we’re throwing out a special thank you to JustMaier for his thorough and helpful read through of out documentation + multiple pull-requests to make it better. Thanks!
We are particularly proud of landing the pre-release of the JS HTTP Client, which you’ll hear more about on our blog this week ;).
500 Number of downloads of our JS HTTP Client pre-release in April.
We were pretty excited to add Benjamin Lupton to the team in April.
We know this didn’t happen in April, but why hide it? We were also joined by Thomas, Textile’s first engineering intern!
Say hi to Benjamin, Thomas, and the rest of the Textile team on our developer Slack, or find us hanging out at one of these upcoming events!
