This month marks a momentous occasion in the life of any budding product: the halfway point to a million users. That's right: Trello has officially passed the 500,000 signups mark!
500,000 jelly beans weigh about 10 US tons. We're not sure how much 500,000 users weigh, but it must be a lot. We're so floored by all the people around the world who've chosen Trello to help them streamline workflows, communicate efficiently, and plan 500th anniversaries for their kingdoms. To all of you: thank you, thank you, thank you.
But we don't just want to say it, we want to show it. Do you remember this cute little guy from the very first time you poked around this new thing called Trello?
That's Taco. He's always been a little shy, but he agreed to make a special appearance to celebrate our coming-of-age.
So today, you might spot him hanging around the Trello site. He's even stepped up to personally deliver gifts to our first 500,000 users. If you're one of them, check out your Profile page. He hopes you like it and that you'll show all your friends.
In the future, Taco could visit again. Since huskies work in mysterious ways, we can't really say when. But we will mention that he loves meeting new people—something about all the hugs he gets. So the more folks you invite over to Trello, the more likely he might stop by...
We've also added an awesome new feature called Card Cover, which lets you put images on the front of cards. Imagine the possibilities!
If you have any questions, comments, or love letters to Taco, you know how to find us. Cheers!
P.S. To celebrate the 500,000th account Joel has written a blog post about kanban, backlogs, and shipping, complete with pictures of the real-life Taco!
