What a difference a year makes.

Posted by jbob on June 10, 2004 at 7:35 PM PDT

On a personal note, June 10th represents two major milestones. java.net turned 1 year old and my first child turned 6 months old. They are the two most rewarding and challenging experiences of my professional and personal life.

What a great year we've had at java.net and look at how far we've come.

  • Zero to 54,000 members in our first year
  • Over 900 projects
  • 111 active bloggers
  • 14 Communities
  • Countless original articles
  • A fresh homepage every day

Since I started writing monthly reports in April, it became apparent how much we continue to accomplish and grow every single month. The collaboration and involvement of all of our members, bloggers, project owners, community leaders, and contributors is what makes java.net a great community.

Hopefully, a lot of our members will make it out to Java One this year so we can all meet in person and celebrate a successful first year. If you are attending, make sure to stop by the java.net booth as well as attend our many java.net events at Java One and introduce yourself.

Again, Happy Birthday java.net and thanks to all who contributed to our first year.
