Community Roundup: September

Check out what's been happening in the Bitrise community in the past month!

Welcome back to another one of our Community Roundups, folks! We're excited to bring you a new collection of our favorite articles and mentions in this past month — let's get to it, shall we?

Articles of the month

Our first article of the month comes from Alan Steiman at Flawless iOS, and is titled “Automating app distribution using Bitrise”. We love it, Alan — thank you so much for this.

Next is an article from the folks over at Contact Mapping, titled “Using to Prepare for Future Xcode Upgrades”. Thank you for putting this together, and for the continued support.

"Using to Prepare for Future Xcode Upgrades"

This little snippet comes from Cathandnya, who had a bit of a problem installing AdHoc binaries built with Bitrise. Luckily, he found a solution — thanks for sharing this with the community.

Tweets of the month

Our first mention comes from Sam Andrew, who gave us an amazing shoutout. Thank you so much, Sam — we really appreciate it.

Have you tried @bitrise cloud CI/CD yet? If you answered "no", you have been missing a lot.

It always makes us smile to see people out there wearing Bitrise merch — which is why we absolutely love this tweet from FromKK, whose wife wore the Tokyo BUG t-shirt to the store. Thank you for sharing this with us, Kazuya. 🎉

This next one comes from Jason, who replied to a tweet by our CTO, Viktor Benei, and gave us a shoutout for being awesome. Back at you, Jason!

Tried bitrise a while ago... It’s awesome. Found you guys from a @CodeWithChris video.— Jason ☕☕🍵 (@HaqueJason) September 2, 2020

We also saw some nice tweets about the long-awaited opening change to the Bitrise Workflow Editor that happened this month. We’re always happy to be able to tailor the service more to our users’ needs — thank you all for the kind words.

Next up is a tweet from Josh Holtz, who recommended us to Ben Noland as a good CI choice for an indie dev. Thank you for the shoutout, Josh — we hope Ben has had the chance to check us out in the meantime. 😉

Might want to take a look at @bitrise 😊— Josh “Typo Maker” Holtz 💪🚀 (@joshdholtz) September 10, 2020

Next up, we wanted to give a shoutout to a couple of people who just started out with Bitrise. Thank you for sharing your experiences, and we hope to hear more about how it’s all been going.

Learned about a new tool,
@bitrise. I was looking for an application to create pipeline for the iOS app and then found Bitrise.
Worked on how to create a workflow, upload code signing certificates, different build steps, etc.— Amanpreet Kaur (@burgerNpizza) September 17, 2020

Our next tweet comes from our long-time contributor Moataz Nabil, who just tried his hand at fan-out builds with the help of the documentation on our blog. We’re so glad to hear it’s working well, and that you’re saving even more time thanks to it. Keep up the good work!

It was a challenge and not an easy task but yes I did it, with @bitrise I speed up the iOS builds by running multiple builds at the same time to build and run our UI tests in parallel. for more details:— Moataz Nabil (@Moatazeldebsy) September 15, 2020

As always, no Roundup is complete without a swag tweet! This one comes from Khoa Pham, who joined us at one of our last BUG webinars. We had a blast, Khoa — hope you like the presents!

Lovely surprise ❤️ @bitrise— Khoa 🔥 (@onmyway133) September 16, 2020

Next up is a tweet by Simon Reggiani, who commented on a question Kadi Kraman had about what people use for React Native iOS builds — we’re happy to hear that we already were a strong contender, but we’re super grateful for the shoutout, Simon. As for Kadi — let us know if you had a chance to try the platform out! 🚀

I’ve been eyeing up Bitrise already! 15min sounds great 😍— Kadi Kraman 👻 (@kadikraman) September 18, 2020

We also wanted to give a huge shoutout to to Peter-John Welcome and Hokila Jan for speaking about us at events — Peter-John appeared at .droidcon Online last week, and Hoklia is going to talk at iPlayground 2020 tomorrow. Thank you both for these talks — we can't stress just how much we appreciate it, but we are working on launching something very special for contributors in the upcoming two weeks, so stay tuned!

Last but not least, we have two tweets about one of our most popular latest initiatives, the Bitrise Manga project. Hideaki Yanagi was the one who helped us with the idea for this one — we really appreciate your help. As for Ichinose Shogo's tweet about the plushies... you may find some clues to them popping up on social in the next two weeks. 🐱🤖
