A concise Preside History

  • 5 years ago (ish): Preside closed source
  • We started from scratch on ColdBox and Presented at CFCamp
  • Within 6 months, Pixl8 started developing applications for clients on the new platform
  • May 2015: 10.0.0 was released
  • Since then "minor" releases

Beyond just the code

  • We have well maintained and growing documentation: https://docs.preside.org - contributions and pull requests always welcome :)
  • We have a small but very friendly and professional community who gather on Slack
  • Issues and releases managed in JIRA
  • Project on Github with nearly 400 merged pull requests and a handful of closed. Currently 2 open.
