The Open Source Story Behind Mattermost Boards

Mattermost Boards started as an innovation project that came up during a hackathon we held in late 2020. At Mattermost, we’re focused on helping the world build better software by aligning teams, tools, and processes. We work like most other software development teams do, with stuff all over the place — in chat, emails, Google Docs, and systems like Jira and GitHub.

How We've Built an Open Source Community at Mattermost

Our community has been at the heart of what makes Mattermost great since the earliest days.
