Weekly Community Roundup: July 31 – August 7

Check out what's been going on in the Bitrise community this week!

Welcome back to our Weekly Community Roundup, everyone! This week, the first Bitrise User Group (BUG) meetup happened, and it was truly all the buzz. We also saw some amazing articles, as per usual — let’s dive in, shall we?

Before we start, we wanted to give a huge shoutout to everyone who attended the first Bitrise User Group meetup (BUG).  We were glad to see how many of you came, and hope you had a wonderful time — hope to see you again on the second one!

With this in mind, we wanted to share some of our favorite tweets about the meetup. We saw quite a few mentions, so we want to thank everyone, the ones below included, for all your enthusiasm. Cheers!

We also saw some great talks and presentations, all of which you can find in our brand-new BUG article. Special thanks go out to Kishikawa Katsumi, Yusuke Kita, Nozomi Ito, Jumpei Matsuda, Ryosuke Horie, Yoppie, Tomohiro Tsukui (two2q), S. Nakamura (nacam403), Kazumasa Kawazure, and Kanari3. We really appreciate you putting so much effort into making this BUG as amazing as it was.

Articles of the week

Our first article of the week comes from Milosz Moczkowski over at Stanwood, who wrote an article aptly titled “Bitrise & TestFairy: A Love Story Better Than Titanic”. Great job, Milosz — thanks for this.

Our second article comes from Matteo Danelli, who submitted a piece titled “Publish an Android app with Bitrise” to our Writers Program, in which he shows off the workflow he has set up for compiling and deploying his React Native project. Amazing work, as always, Matteo — much appreciated!

Next up, we have an article from one of our Writers’ Program’s newest members, Satheesh Kumar. Satheesh wrote a piece titled “Continuous Testing for iOS Apps using XCUITest, Bitrise & Browserstack” — thanks for putting this together, Satheesh! We love it.

Our next article comes from Yasuo Nakagawa from over at Sansan, who wrote about how the company reached 25% faster overall build times using Bitrise caching (in Japanese). That’s amazing, Yasuo — thanks for this!

We also wanted to share an interesting piece (in Japanese) about the Nagaoka Fireworks official app, which uses a service you might be familiar with — Bitrise! We really appreciate you folks over at Fuller Inc. sharing how you make use of the platform, and we’re in awe of what kind of amazing projects we can be a part of through our users.

Another shoutout goes out to Seyed Jafari, who wrote an article about Setting up a CI server from the beginning on AIO, in which he talked about Bitrise. Well done, Seyed — we’re glad to be of service.

Last but not least, we saw an article from one of our other regulars, Moataz Nabil. This time, Moataz wrote about the different type of test that can be run using Robo Test on Firebase Test Lab and Bitrise. Amazing as always, Moataz — cheers!

Tweets of the week

Our first tweet of the week comes from Itok, who shared quite an achievement — 25 apps in total registered in Bitrise. Congratulations, Itok — we would love to hear more about the work you do.

Next up, we have a throwback to last week with Alex Rodionov, who was looking for a CI service for testing macOS apps. Alex tried out the platform, and it looks like everything is working great. We’re happy to hear so, Alex.

Our next tweet comes from Jewelve, who thinks our logo is cute. Well, we can’t argue with that Jewelve — back at you for tweeting about it!

Next up, we have a tweet from Himanshu Waila, who found a yet-to-be-released swag thanks to his 3-year-old: the Bitrise fridge! We applaud your daughter’s choice of decoration, Himanshu. Rest assured, we’ll get you (and her) some more stickers. 😉

Our next mention comes from Andyeb, who recommended us to Martin Pilkington, saying “life is too short to spend it configuring CI for iOS”. We agree whole-heartedly, Andyeb. Cheers!

Next, we have a tweet from Boris-Wilfried N., who just discovered Bitrise and gave us a shoutout. We really appreciate it — happy building! 🚀

We also saw a recommendation from Josh Burton to Rafael Winterhalter, who was looking for a CI service with a free tier for his macOS projects. Thanks for the shoutout, Josh!

Next up, we have a tweet from Jesse Todisco, who seems to be having a great time after switching over to Bitrise from another CI/CD platform. We’re glad to hear it, Jesse — and we’re definitely glad to have you on board. 🎉

Getting to use a modern CI/CD platform on a proper project for the first time in 2 years is a godsend. Goodbye Jenkins, hello Bitrise!— Jesse Todisco (@panicattodisco) August 6, 2019

Our next tweet comes from Roman Nowicki, who talked about how much he likes how things are going with Flutter and products that support it — including Bitrise. Thanks, Roman. Keep up the good work!

More and more great products are coming with Flutter support. I hope this new #flutter revolution finally will end the process of wasting time and money on producing the same software for various platforms. Well done @bitrise 👏👏👏 https://t.co/xggFyYlWtR— Roman Nowicki (@romannowicki) August 6, 2019

Last but not least, we have a few examples of the answers we saw to a poll Patricia Aas created about CI platforms. We want to thank all of you who recommended us, or gave us shoutouts — you're the best!

That’s it for this week’s roundup, everyone. If you have any great experiences or stories about using Bitrise, or would just love to share the progress you’re making on your current project with us, don't forget to do so on social media, or submit an article to our Writers' Program, and you might see yourself in our next set of highlights. Until then — happy building!
