It’s that time again! Time to step back from all of the hard work that the EdgeX Foundry Community has put into building out our latest version and celebrate what we have accomplished over the last year. Join us as we recognize members who have gone the extra mile to make EdgeX so successful, with our 3rd Annual EdgeX Community Awards.
When we first started the awards in 2018, we had about 1,000 downloads and about 20 contributors. A year later, in April 2019, we moved within LF Edge and became its first Stage 3 project. At that time, EdgeX Foundry had about 75 contributors and 100,000 total downloads. We also released two more versions (Edinburgh and Fuji). As the community grew, so did the scope and the downloads. In September, we hit 1= Million downloads, and we closed out the year with our second million downloads. By the end of February 2020, we surpassed 3 million downloads and have more than 150 contributors.
