During the last weeks we have been presenting some of our results in the Liferay Developer conferences in Berlin and Madrid. A daily challenge in our business is to improve the knowledge of the community developers about its project and according to the good feedback we got from the developers this has been achieved.
The Liferay community is driven by a single company and based on the data we got they are doing it well. During the last months the company is hiring one engineer per week, which explains in part the huge growth of code authors during the last four years. Basically the number of developers since 2009 was multiplied by four. During the first half of 2009 the number of people contributing to the source code was 58, four years later during the first half of the current year the number of persons who have contributed to the source code has been 201.
