About one year ago, we shut down our open source community’s blog and moved everyone over to Medium.
Since then, on this Medium publication,
- 214 contributors
- have published 460 stories
- which have each been viewed an average of 17,000 times.
Half of all the stories we’ve published have been viewed at least 5,000 times.
Over 12 months, our community publication — which focuses on development, design, and data science — has become the 12th largest Medium publication, and the largest technical one.
How did our community’s publication manage to grow so quickly?
