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!
