Hey everyone,

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates, happy holidays to everyone, and happy almost-new-year!

We had a bit of a slow year in terms of devRant updates, but we gained some momentum towards the end of the year and we're looking forward to carrying it into 2020. Recently, we launched what I think are our coolest new avatar items yet (https://devrant.com/rants/2322869/...) and behind the scenes we got our iOS/Android apps on the latest version of the frameworks we use, which will help us continue to improve stability. Still, we definitely would have liked to do more, but we're optimistic the coming year will bring great things for devRant.

One thing we are very proud of is this year we had our best year ever in terms of platform stability and uptime. Despite the platform growing and our userbase growing, we had almost no complete app downtime even though our infrastructure is minimal. A large part of this is thanks to devRant++ supporters, who allow us to maintain a small but effective tier of infrastructure and redundancy.

In the coming year, we're going to launch one of our most ambitious initiatives yet, and we're also going to continue to improve the devRant experience itself. We want to try to gather more user feedback, so we'll be working on a way to do that too. Stay tuned, more on this stuff coming soon.

As always, thank you everyone, and thanks for your amazing contributions to the devRant community! And thank you to our awesome devRant++ supporters for continuing to be the main drivers to keeping devRant up and running.

Looking forward to 2020,
- David and Tim

    Dark and nerdy humor: if your Christmas isn't Merry, you won't even bother with the rest of the holidays (short circuit evaluation on the && operator in the image).

    Making a joke like this gives me the impression I have been coding for too long and too hard the past few weeks.

    Oh and thank you @dfox and @trogus for working so hard on this platform even though you both have full time jobs!
    Unfortunately I'm not a devRant++ member anymore, but I hope my ~50$ still have helped you out a bit <3

    See y'all in 2020!

    congratulations for the great performance, you guys!

    since this is a growing platform with a userbase greater than many startups, did you receive any funding or acquisition offer from VCs or bigger companies?
