The Freshworks Developer Community celebrates its second anniversary this month; looking back, we sure have come a long way!
We want to take this opportunity to thank each one of you for being part of this incredible journey and helping us build this community together.
Through the Freshworks Developer Community, our goal has always been to create a place where developers could share knowledge, collaborate, and have discussions on common queries and points of interest with fellow app developers and Freshworks engineers. Last year, the community grew to 1000+ strong!
When we launched the community forum back in 2020, we had no idea what was waiting for us. Due to the pandemic (three continuous covid waves), we were mostly restricted to the digital means of communication and catch-ups. However, that did not stop us from building our relationship with the community and making the bond even stronger.
Launch of Code Recipes: We launched code recipes as a learning and training resource for our developer community to get hands-on experience on the platform.
Launch of Crayons: A refreshed UI library for Freshworks developers to create a better developer experience.
Launch of wiki articles: We launched wiki articles to help developers with solutions, learning materials, detailed processes, FAQs, and best practices.
Freshworks developer newsletter: A monthly developer newsletter to keep you updated with our platform’s happenings and latest developments.
Community Champions Program: A quarterly community champions program to recognize all the efforts and contributions of our developers to the community.
We met multiple times on virtual platforms for developer interaction:
These were just some of the highlights from the past two years, and we are sure we have many more years waiting for us to celebrate as we are just getting started! Let’s have a huge shoutout (and a virtual, socially-distanced hug) for our community’s heart and soul -the members and the fantastic team behind the community, for driving this community with a lot of dedication and enthusiasm.
As we derive our inspiration from this quote by Germany Kent, “Be transparent. Let’s build a community that allows hard questions and honest conversations so we can stir up transformation in one another.”
Cheers to the Freshworks developer community.
