+One year ago today Apache Beam was accepted into incubation at the Apache
+Software Foundation. The community's work over the past year culminated, just
+over three weeks ago, with an [announcement]({{ site.baseurl }}/blog/2017/01/10/beam-graduates.html)
+that Apache Beam has successfully graduated as a new Top-Level Project at the
+foundation. Graduation sparked an additional interest in the project, from
+corporate endorsements, news articles, interviews, to the volume of traffic to
+our website and mailing lists.
+Corporate endorsements include Google, PayPal, Talend, data Artisans, and
+others. You can read more in the following blog posts:
+* Google: "[Apache Beam graduates to a top-level project]("
by Tyler Akidau.
+* Talend: "[The Future of Apache Beam, Now a Top-Level Apache Software Foundation Project]("
by Jean-Baptiste Onofré.
+* Talend: "[Apache Beam Your Way to Greater Data Agility]("
by Shane Kent.
+* Google: "[Apache Beam graduates from incubation: Try it today on Google Cloud Dataflow]("
by Frances Perry.
+News coverage started with the Apache Software Foundation’s press release in
+[Nasdaq GlobeNewswire](,
+and followed by coverage in many independent outlets. Some of those in English
+* ZDNet: "[Apache Beam and Spark: New coopetition for squashing the Lambda Architecture?]("
by Tony Baer.
+* Datanami: "[Google Lauds Outside Influence on Apache Beam]("
by Alex Woodie.
+* InfoWorld / JavaWorld: "[Apache Beam unifies batch and streaming for big data]("
by Serdar Yegulalp, and republished in [JavaWorld](
+* JAXenter: "[In a way, Apache Beam is the glue that connects many big data systems together]("
by Kypriani Sinaris.
+* OStatic: "[Apache Beam Unifies Batch and Streaming Data Processing]("

+* Enterprise Apps Today: "[Apache Beam Graduates to Help Define Streaming Data Processing]("

by Alexander J. Martin.
+* SiliconANGLE: "[Apache Software Foundation announces two more top-level open source projects]("

+* SD Times: "[Apache Beam goes top level]("
by Alex Handy.
+Graduation and media coverage helped push Beam website traffic to record levels.
+The website traffic, measured in unique sessions per hour, peaked at more than
+15 times above the previous week’s numbers. In a steady state, the traffic is
+several times larger than before graduation.
+Hopefully these perspectives entice you to join us on this exciting ride, either
+as a user or a contributor, as we work towards our first release with API
+stability. If you’d like to try out Apache Beam today, check out the latest
+[0.4.0 release]({{ site.baseurl }}/get-started/downloads/). We welcome
+contribution and participation from anyone through our mailing lists, issue
+tracker, pull requests, and events.
