JetBrains: 2016 in Review
2016 was an important year for us as a company. The important changes we had introduced in 2015 made for a lot of work to do and kinks to iron out. The two biggest ones included the introduction of the JetBrains Toolbox subscription model, and new company branding.
tl;dr — we made it!
For more insights into the various JetBrains events and accomplishments in 2016, check out this 2016 Report.
Our current licensing model is still young but the first year has showed it is viable both for our customers and for us. We see many customers use monthly subscriptions and we also see strong demand for ‘All Products Pack.’
Our user base is growing steadily and we’re planning to hit 4 million active users in Q1 2017.
An important part of 2016 for us was Kotlin, its 1.0 release in February and its impressive community growth throughout the year. Do not miss the special section on Kotlin in the report.
