Hello Dgraph Community,
I am delighted to share that Dgraph has raised a new round of capital from a world class group of investors. I wanted to let you all know first.
The community is the most important part of Dgraph and we can’t wait to get back to building and supporting the Dgraph project together.
There are a number of exciting updates in the works:
We are rebuilding and growing the engineering team. If interested, please reach out to us!
Our CTO recently accepted and will be joining shortly, we are thrilled to have him and announce the details soon.
A number of improvements have been in the pipeline focused on reliability, availability, and operability, both for the open project and cloud services. We will also be addressing the concerns from 21.12 and expect to push a new release this summer. As well as improving the GraphQL implementation, pushing the boundaries and innovating here while still adhering to the standards.
The community is core to us. We are committed to earning back the moral authority to be the stewards of Dgraph. That means ensuring that contribution, community involvement, and feedback are part of the Dgraph fabric. We will be building up a community advisory board (like a pseudo PMC), hiring a devrel team, publish a longer term roadmap with clarity between the community and enterprise versions, and actively work with our community on pushing the project forward. We are making a commitment to ensuring the open core continues to be supported and funded for the long term.
While we have a lot more we want to do, this is just the start.
We are grateful to the Dgraph user community and customers for your continued support as we start this exciting new chapter. Please share any feedback or thoughts with us, we’re all in the boat together. An official update will be coming out soon!
