Party popperA million moments of innovation, a million instances of creative coding, a million downloads. Party popper Microsoft Semantic Kernel has proudly reached a significant milestone within the software development community. This achievement is not just a number—it’s a beacon of collective progress and the power of open-source collaboration. Join us as we extend our heartfelt thanks to the community and customers as we look ahead to the future of productivity leveraging AI.

The Microsoft Semantic Kernel is more than an SDK; it’s a bridge between your existing code and the next generation of AI. By reaching 1,000,000 downloads, it’s clear that developers have embraced its versatility and the opportunity it presents for enhancing applications and automating complex processes while empowering employees and end users. The release of the 1.0 .NET version in December 2023 was a major leap forward, bringing forth a matured, stable framework aligned with the needs of the developer community which has propelled us to 1,000,000 .NET kernel downloads.

As we look to the horizon, the excitement builds for the upcoming launches of the 1.0 Python and Java versions of the Semantic Kernel. These additions will not only complement the existing .NET package but will also welcome a broader spectrum of developers into the fold that can collaborate together seamlessly. The ease of integrating advanced AI models to interact with code across these languages promises an unprecedented level of functionality and accessibility.

Our GitHub repository serves as the heart of this growing ecosystem—housing the code, discussions, and innovations that propel the Semantic Kernel forward. We invite you to explore, contribute, and join the collaborative force that’s driving the future of AI productivity.

With the Microsoft BUILD session around the corner in May 2024, we’re preparing to dive deeper into the capabilities of the Semantic Kernel and share success stories from our community. This will be an occasion to not only celebrate our joint achievements but also to continue building upon this momentum, hopefully you can join us.

One million downloads is just the beginning. To every developer who has been a part of this journey, thank you. We are excited to see where your ingenuity takes the Semantic Kernel next. We encourage you to keep contributing, sharing, and innovating alongside us.

Let’s push the boundaries of what’s possible together. Here’s to the next million!
