It gives me great pleasure to write this here as our favorite StackExchange website just turned 10 years old.
It was a long journey, but a fun one.
In the last 10 years we've build a great community, we shared here our problems and frustration but also our knowledge and our great ideas. Thank you all for being part of it.
Now let's remember what got us here.
It all started with a proposal on area51.stackexchange.com at the end of 2012 by our favorite person in the whole world, Ben Marks.
The private beta started on January 22nd 2013 and one week later came the public beta.
In August 2015 magento.stackexchange.com graduated and became a fully functioning stackexchange website with the help of all of us.
