As we stand at the cusp of a new decade, I want to thank the BSSw community, whose efforts have led to great strides in building better scientific software. In 2019, the BSSw site was revamped to improve user experience through enhanced site navigation, along with additions to our ever-expanding collection of resources. We thank our international community of contributors who are sharing their philosophies and experiences, as well as our readers from all over the world.
