I’m excited to announce we’ve pulled our 100th code contribution for the year, which marks a great milestone in our growing Sugar Community. Each contribution, whether big or small, has made a huge impact on the overall functionality, stability, and customizability of the product. And in the process it has brought more great minds into the fold of building an amazing and extensive platform.
I want to call out some of the star contributions over the past year that have helped us get to this point:
- Cedric Mourizard, and the whole gang at Synolia. I can’t say enough about these guys, as they have been huge proponents of the Open+ Developer Program and pioneers in co-innovating with us over GitHub. As one of our oldest partners, they are true ambassadors to the brand and great friends
- Fabio Grande from SugarCRM partner Poker SpA. He came on the scene at SugarCon this past April and then amazed us with the mass number of bug fixes he contributed to us en route to being the winner of the SugarCRM Bug Fix Contest in June. He’s definitely established himself and Poker SpA as a great SugarCRM developers.
- Jason Eggers, who has long been a stalwart in the Sugar Community, active on both the forums and IRC channel and contributor to this blog, has made several great code contributions for both the bug contest and afterwards as well. I can’t tell you how many people have came to me saying how helpful he has been with solving problems with a Sugar customization they are trying to do.
- Kris Hardy, a new community member who has thrown a whole stack of great code contributions to us in the past few weeks or so. He was the guy that pushed us over the century mark with code contribution for the year, and I want to make sure I gave a special callout to him and look forward to more contributions coming down the road.
And trust me, this is just a small sampling of the great contributors over the past year. I want to thank each and every one of you who has done a pull request or sent in a bug fix to us that has made it into the product. You have made Sugar the amazing platform it is today.
Want to become one of these star contributors? Then give us pull requests on GitHub with any bug fixes or enhancements you may have and we will work diligently to get them into Sugar. And don’t forget the great code sprints we have upcoming in 2012; they are great opportunites to hack on the Sugar core platform and learn from other top notch Sugar Developers and Sugar Engineers.
