I've been using the Joomla! CMS since 2006 when 1.0 was the only option and there were a couple thousand extensions. Over the years I have watched Joomla! grow, and I have grown with it, writing and customizing extensions for my clients and submitting those improvements and fixes back to the developer. There has always been an incredible amount of help and information that has let me do just about anything with an extension, and I am grateful to the Joomla! Community for being such a great team of developers and designers willing to help each other and their customers.
As of today, there are now 10,004 extensions for Joomla!, written by people all over the world. I am proud to be a part of this fantastic community and look forward to more extensions, better versions and better websites that are the result of it.
