To all the Facebook Engineers working on open source,

We at Reactiflux just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your hard work in 2016. Your job isn’t easy. You have a million requests coming at you all the time from both your internal teams and the external community. Dan Abramov once compared managing issues and pull requests to juggling chainsaws on fire. Yes, we know all of you get paid really well to do open source full time, and that your work meets Facebook’s needs, but we think that you have gone above and beyond in the way that you have treated the community.

The way that you guys respond to emails and Twitter mentions. The attention you give to each issue/PR. The time you give to different organizations doing podcasts and AMAs. The list goes on.

We’ve personally seen an amazing humility in each of you, and it’s a pleasure to be around you wonderful people. Thank you for what you do and the excellence you put into all your efforts.

We’d like to invite the React community to reply to this thread with your own “thank you” comments to the team at Facebook. Let’s show them how grateful we are! Feel free to include experiences with the team or just how the React ecosystem has helped you as a developer.

Sincerely,

On behalf of the Reactiflux community:

Thank you! :)

I'm pretty new to React, but it's pretty fun so far learning it. Right now, I'm quite excited to work on mobile apps, so I'm learning React Native (and React through that way). Knowing a bit of Swift, React has really simplified the way I make iOS apps and it's so familiar, fast and great. If I had to make something like React or React Native, I wouldn't know where to start. A great job on these and I hope to further my skills using React and develop some great apps.

Thanks guys for these libraries and the various other work you do to help the community!

Just had my first brief experience with React Native and I'm just blown away with what I can do with it in just over 2 hours of playing around with it. Baby steps, but a step forward all the same. Sincerely appreciate the hard work from everyone who has contributed to React!

Thank you! React has been a joy to work with since I picked it up this year and I can't wait to go further with it in the future. A huge part of it is the community, where I've seen core contributors take the time to discuss architecture decisions around React apps with developers and offer insight into why things work the way they do. I haven't ever seen a movement as strong as this before. Thanks again!
