Winding down for the year

Dear Trigger developers,

Well here we are again. The year is drawing to a close, there’s a definite festive spirit in the air and I’m wondering where the time has gone.

2015 has been a landmark year for Trigger.io and I’m pleased as punch to share that we are once again showing stable month-on-month growth. This marks the completion of the transitionary period from externally-funded startup
to a sustainable business and is a reliable indicator that we will continue to be here for all of you, now and in the future.

We wouldn’t have come this far without the willingness of the Trigger.io community to bet on us. So from our oldest customers who have been with us since we were in beta to our newest customers who only joined this week:

“Thank you, you rock!”

I’m not going to get into details on the engineering work we have planned for the new year as I covered it last month. Instead, I’d like to talk about the softer side of the platform.

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve heard from many of you with suggestions and questions about what 2016 holds in store. The dominant theme in all these conversations have been that it’s time for us to put energy and
resources into the Trigger.IO community.

Based on these conversations, some of the things we’d like to look at are:

  • Opening up the development processes around our open source native modules.
  • Making the knowledge accumalated in our support systems publicaly available.
  • Alternatives to stackoverflow.com for community support and communication.
  • Re-organising tutorials and other how-to information on our blog and website for discoverability.
  • Rebooting a sadly lapsed tradition of showcasing the work our customers are doing.

If you’ve also got ideas you’d like to share, please get in touch.

Finally, our offices will be shutting down on the 15th of December 2015 and will open again on the 7th of January. We will however have someone checking in on support during this time in case any emergencies come up.

Wishing everyone a fantastic holiday to recharge for the coming year, I have a feeling it’s going to be a great one!

All the best,
Antoine
