Yu Liu

Dear Apache Pulsar enthusiast,

As we know, when assessing the health of an open-source community, it is tempting to focus on various quantitative metrics, for example, activity, size (contributors), demographics, diversity, and so on, among which the number of contributors is a key metric for measuring the health and popularity of a project and a way to inform the trends.

And today, we are very proud to see that Apache Pulsar has attracted its 200th contributor! It is an important milestone for our community growth.

Over the years, there’s been an upward trend that more organizations embracing real-time data and stream processing, and Pulsar is the key component of that shift. As an open-source distributed pub-sub messaging system originally created at Yahoo! and graduated as a Top-Level Project (TLP) in September 2018, Pulsar has launched 79 releases, attracted 4100+ commits from 200 contributors, and received 4.6k+ stars, 1.2k+ forks, and 1.3k+ Slack users up to now.
