As 2019 draws to a close, we're continuing our annual tradition of celebrating the hard work that the LoopBack team achieved in the past year. As you might expect, developing LoopBack 4 was the main focus, with events, updates and "how to" content adding flavour to the mix. That focus has resulted in a lot of improvements and features for the framework, as well as quality interaction with the LoopBack community.

Grab your seasonal beverage of choice, whether hot or cold, and read on for a trip down 2019 memory lane!

We've provided news, tutorials, and updates on LoopBack for almost as long as the StrongLoop site existed, and continued to do so after IBM acquired StrongLoop in 2015. Recently, IBM created another resource for LoopBack! In addition to accessing news of the open-source Node.js API Framework on this site, you can now also find news, code and more on the official IBM Developer LoopBack page.
