*Welcome to the NetBeans 10th Birthday Celebration! Join us as we celebrate
our vibrant community and recognize people and projects that have shaped our
success! *
Since 1998, NetBeans has grown from a student project into an award winning
Open Source project, IDE and application platform. With millions of
downloads a year worldwide, the NetBeans community boasts an active and
diverse following of software developers, students, instructors and partner
companies. Throughout the week, visit this

greetings, community profiles and more—that will
highlight some of the key initiatives and dedicated individuals whose
contributions have kept the NetBeans momentum going strong.
