An Amazing Milestone for Cilium - 10,000 stars!
We recently passed an incredible milestone in Cilium’s journey - over 10,000 stars on GitHub. Thanks to each and every one of you who has clicked that star button!
This is a fitting close to a wonderful year for the Cilium project, driven by our fantastic contributors and community. Just to mention a few highlights:
We joined the CNCF at Incubation level, finding our home alongside many other great cloud native infrastructure projects
We’ve welcomed over 9,000 people on Cilium Slack (and at current growth rates it won’t be long before we need another digit there too!)
Cilium Service Mesh is in beta, with hundreds of people already participating, modernizing the data path in Service mesh implementations.
All of this is possible thanks to every single person who contributes. Whether you’re working full-time on Cilium, raising issues, contributing to the docs, or sharing your knowledge of Cilium and eBPF, you’re playing a valuable part in Cilium’s progress. We hope you’ll join in celebrating this 10,000 star milestone success!
