The week before we launched we had planned an off-site. We wanted to celebrate the way we work and how strongly we feel about free & open source software, about the community and what makes a team truly remarkable. It all boils down to culture so we concentrated on that and decided to enjoy our day, the TAIGA DAY.
We start off our celebration of the Taiga (the real one and the software) by naming our first post-release changelog, the Alnus Maximowiczii release (v1.1.0 ). We celebrate this species of Taiga inhabitant, an Alder tree native to Japan, Korea and the Russian Far East, and we salute our 2,482 visitors from those countries
First off, thanks for taking Taiga out for a spin. After 3 years of development (on and off at first and then as its own company in the last 6 months) we're excited to turn it over to you. It all started with a team at Kaleidos a Madrid-based company that builds software for both large corporations and startups. The team there is a lively happy bunch who feel that free & open source is the way to go when choosing tools. These guys and girls are fast-paced, burn with an obsession for failing fast, and demand transparency and certainty in order to be at the top of their game.
