It is times like this when it is fun to step back and reflect on the amazing momentum of the SugarCRM community. Can you believe that SugarForge.org is only three years old? I remember in late 2004, early 2005 when the community was asking for a collaboration site where they could focus on just SugarCRM. We really wanted to get the synergy of the Sugar developers focused around one site dedicated to the Sugar community. And so SugarForge.org was launched in March 2005.
Since then, the SugarForge site and the Sugar community have taken off. Not only does SugarForge.org now have 500 projects, but is also coming up on 13,500 registered developers and 4.5 million downloads in the next few weeks. With millions of web page views every month, SugarForge has truly become the focal point of open source CRM development.
So what has happened on SugarForge.org in these past three years?
- 78.1 million web pages viewed
- 4.38 million files downloads
- 13,487 developers registered
- 3,128 different files served
Now that is open source redefining CRM software.
