A couple of weeks ago, I attended CodeMash 2009 in Sandusky, Ohio - my second time attending as Program Manager for CodePlex. The first year, I spent 2 days sitting non-stop with project owners and site visitors, collecting feedback about the site. Their feedback would play a significant role in determining the priorities for upcoming features. Now that a year has past, we wanted to share with you how CodePlex has grown.
Over 2008, we had 12 new releases of the CodePlex software, with the following top 9 features:
Top New Projects of 2008
These are the top Open Source projects created in 2008, by page view count:
And as for 2009?
We’re waiting to hear your feedback! Let us know what we can do.
Over on the CodePlex blog , I just posted the stats for the year in review. Here’s a sneak peek: Site
Kudos for all the work you and your team did in 2008. You forgot one really great, but invisible feature which is awesome performance enhancements as well as superb stability. While this one isn't as sexy, it sure shows that Codeplex isn't just a tool made for fun - it's something MS takes seriously.
Keep it up in 2009!
im new here, but its too good this stuff... keep it up
tell me more, last I looked you had to host the xap on another server and still I couldn't get it to work for DeepEarth as it seemed to be inserting the V1 object :(
@SoulSolutions What's the URL you're using? We suggest using http://silverlight.live.com/ for free hosting.
CodePlex is a good community site for developers to find components. Keep up the good work!
For 2009, my top 1 feature would be: Add an extra RSS feed that contains only the releases of a project.
An "Releases" feed already exists, but I would like to subscribe only to items marked as "Released *". I don't need the "Updated Release *" and "Created Release *" items.
I am subscribed to a lot of CodePlex RSS feeds, having that extra filtered "Releases" feed would shrink my new RSS items per day by avg 50%.
Hey guys. I'm a newcomer, but I'll become one of you very soon. Seeing such a boom in CodePlex is a good news of "one-in-a-million" kind. Become successful, and stay successful.
It is great to see the growth for CodePlex. I am sure that 2009 will see even stronger stats.
