CKEditor 10 Year Anniversary Party!

And finally, we would like to thank everyone who showed up for the anniversary party in Warsaw, Poland. The CKEditor community got a chance to meet face-to-face and mingle over food, free beer and an amicable bowling tournament. Congratulations go to Kira of www.webspellchecker.net for winning the bowling tournament and a Kindle 5! To view some pics of the party, check our Facebook and Google+ pages. 

We would like to thank CKSource for sponsoring the festivities. They made the celebrations a reality. Few Open Source projects have been around for 10 years, and CKEditor is not only still around but reaching new heights! We have the community to thank for that. Your support, contributions and loyalty have made this happen, so this was our way of thanking you. We hope you liked it! Let us know what you thought of the anniversary.
