They say time flies when you’re having fun.

Ten years ago today, we released the inaugural preview of the Magento open commerce
platform. This was no ordinary product launch, but the start of
a decade of collaboration and contribution that created an
incredible global community. This community’s passion and
ingenuity made dreams come true for businesses across the
world, driving innovation and creating growth at unprecedented
scale and speed, and propelled Magento to become the #1
platform in industry rankings in the US, Europe, and Latin
America.              
                 
                 
              

I’d like to thank our customers, partners, and loyal community
members for helping to make commerce technology open to
everyone and available everywhere. Thanks to all of you, today
Magento represents a more diverse group of businesses than any
other platform in the world.

And the accolades keep rolling in. In fact, Magento was named a
leader in “The Forrester Wave™: B2B Commerce Suites For
Midsize Organizations, Q3 2017” report
, published just this
morning. We couldn’t have asked for a better birthday present!

I’m incredibly proud and humbled by what we’ve achieved
together.  I am even more inspired by what will do
together over the next decade, as we achieve our vision for a
world of commerce without limits!
