What started simply as a proof of concept code published to GitHub one year ago has exploded into the ever-evolving open source platform Rocket.Chat is today. While we have the developer community as a whole to thank for that, our core team members have worked zealously to spur on growth and keep Rocket.Chat always aimed towards the next level.
