Weekly Community Roundup: October 16 – 24

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

This October certainly is proving to be a busy one for us: not only do we have a plethora of sweet articles, we also have some funny tweets involving eating our triple-chocolate cookies and some great recommendations. Let's see what we've got lined up this time!

Articles of the week

Our first article of the week comes from Minami, who wrote a follow-up to the iOS Bitrise+Fastlane article (in Japanese), this time around, focusing on Android. Thanks for this, Minami! If you sign up for the Writers’ Program, we’ll send you a neat swag-package for all the articles you’ve released lately.

Our second article of the week was from the team over at Recochoku, who wrote about how people can increase their iOS build speed on Bitrise (in Japanese). Thanks for putting this together, folks!

Next up is an article by Bannzai, who wrote about uploading an iOS application to App Store Connect using Bitrise (in Japanese). Welcome to the Writers’ Program, Yudai — we’re glad to have you on board!

Our next article comes from Hiroki Kodama, who shared some of the notes he had about building an iOS app with Bitrise (in Japanese). Thanks for writing this up, Hiroki — we’re always glad to see users share their experiences with others.

Last but not least, we wanted to share two decks: Fromkk’s deck from his presentation over at Firebase Japan User Group (FJUG), during which he talked about Firebase App Distribution with Bitrise, and Hokila Jan’s Cocoaheads Taipei deck, which introduced people to Bitrise and its benefits. Both Kazuya and Hokila are part of our growing Speakers’ Program, and we’re super excited to see them talk about us again — hope you had fun at the events, guys!

とりあえず資料あげておきます(処理中) #FJUG https://t.co/CMvPhJ5RuY— かっくん@# Typeの人 (@fromkk) October 24, 2019
今天的投影片,把我知道的 bitrise 大概講了一輪,這次的 TA 是有想接 bitrise 或者想接 CI/CD 的人,所以沒有講得很深。有些東西還是要實際摸過才知道,所以在最後面放了一個教學影片,示範把一個 repo 接起來會遇到哪些問題。https://t.co/1fzNoQvZfV— Hokila Jan (@hokilaJ) October 17, 2019

Tweets of the week

Our first tweet of the week comes from Flzxive, who talked about how delicious our cookie notifications look, even going as far as wanting to eat it. While Bitrise cookies aren’t a thing yet, once they are, we’ll be sure to bring some over during our next visit to Japan. 🍪

Next up is a tweet by Mego, who just got started getting a bit more familiar with Bitrise. We’re happy to have you on board — if you have any questions, just let us know!

今日は少しBitriseに詳しくなった— mego(koishi) (@mego_) October 16, 2019

Next is a recommendation by Sebastian Seidel, who spoke about us when replying to Thomas Bandt’s question about which CI service to use. We’re honored to be ranked number 1 on your list, Sebastian. Thomas, hope we can have you on board soon, too!

Personal preference:
TFS/ AzureDevOps

Bitrise for the ease of configurating steps and process. TFS is close to bitrise and comes with nice things like a scheduler (for e.g. nightly builds).— Sebastian Seidel (@Cayas_Software)

Our first swag-related tweet of the week comes from no other than Yoppie. Hope you like them, Yoshiya — thanks for taking part of the Summer Blog Campaign!

Thank you for sending these! @bitrise pic.twitter.com/IIHyBzMv6x— yoppiǝ (@yoppie_x) October 18, 2019

Next up is a tweet by Hokila Jan, who gave a shoutout to our public Slack channel. Thanks for this, Hokila — we’re hoping we can see more and more of you folks over there!

A special thanks are in order this week, to no other than John Sundell. We actually had the chance to meet John in person this last week, and had a blast while he was over at the office. Hope you had fun exploring the city, too!

Spent the day at @bitrise HQ in beautiful Budapest — super impressed by what the team is doing (saw some really 🤯 demos), and we’ve been planning some incredibly exciting new projects for 2020 as well 😀

Now off to explore this wonderful city, have a great weekend my friends 😊— John Sundell (@johnsundell)

Next up is a tweet by Rick Manelius, who gave us some major props for helping out with speeding up his company’s testing and release cycles. We feel pretty fortunate to be able to help people do their best possible work — here’s to that 10.000 mark, Rick!

Very happy with how much @bitrise has helped my company speed up our testing and release cycles. We just crossed our 1,000th build and we're looking forward to the road to 10,000 💪🏻🚀— Rick Manelius, PhD (@rickmanelius) October 18, 2019

We also wanted to give a shoutout to Mahmoud Ibra, who recommended us to Attia Mo as his CI service of choice. Cheers, Mahmoud!

Next is another swag tweet, this time, from Sasa_nss_app. Hmktsu also marveled in all the neat goodies, and no wonder — hope we can see an article from you soon! Oh, and Noriyuki, if the t-shirt is not the right size, just let us know, and we’ll send another one. 👕

Bitriseのノベルティいいですね…どこかで応募したんですか?— ハムカツおじさん🤘🎮🥟 (@hmktsu) October 19, 2019

Next up is a thread started by Naipakapaka, who just decided to start using Bitrise for his projects. Quite a lot of people cheered him on, including Kazy, Riscait, ta__ta01, and Sasa_nss_app, talking about articles and what their experiences are. It’s awesome to see conversations like this happen, and we’re glad that the members of the community keep helping and inspiring each other. Also, it looks like Naipakapaka already managed to get started, and he already had his first successful build. Well done!

Huge props go out to Meteor, who talked about how companies using another solution should definitely give us a go instead, for the sake of increased productivity, no less. Kangyoosam also seemed to agree whole-heartedly with this — we’ll always be in your debt for all the love you’re showing to the platform, folks.

アプリをCircleCIでビルドしてる会社は是非Bitrise入れて欲しい。ほんと生産性上がりますよ。— meteor (@yaminoma_tw) October 21, 2019

Swag, swag, swag! Devlin Duldulao also shared his share of the goodies this week, complete with socks and all. Thank you for all your work with the local user groups, Devlin — and welcome to the Speakers’ Program.

My swag has arrived yo! Thanks, @bitrise! #bitrise #mobiledevops pic.twitter.com/nB64KHnSmi— Devlin Duldulao (@DevlinDuldulao) October 23, 2019

Smack in the middle of Spooktober, the Spooky Straws have spoken some real spooky truth! Jokes aside, Paul Hudson said some really nice things about us in this tweet, and we wanted to express our gratitude for it. Thanks, Paul — and thanks to everyone else agreeing in the replies. You’re the best!

In case you haven’t been paying attention, Bitrise have been supporting so many events and blogs this year – they are helping to bring people together and helping to support our learning, and are an important part of our community ❤️ https://t.co/tJf0URF2pn— SpookyStraws (@twostraws) October 23, 2019

Next, we have a nice picture of some more swag, this time, from Wada811. Thanks for taking part of our Summer Blog Campaign, and welcome to the Writers’ Program.

Bitrise グッズ来た!ブログ書いたからTシャツとか色々貰えた🎊 pic.twitter.com/kRbvQQDanQ— wada811 (@wada811) October 24, 2019

As our last swag tweet of the week, we have one from Arjun Satish, who also shared a neat composition of the package he got. Cheers, Arjun!

Thank you @bitrise for the goodies . Loved it :) pic.twitter.com/lzA7xoBtjs— ARJUN SATISH (@arjunbvb) October 24, 2019

We’re going to end this week with a tweet from Mogaming, who was just over at FJUG, and tweeted out a simple but pretty powerful message: “Bitrise is amazing”. This one always gets us, folks. Cheers, Mogaming!

Bitriseがすばらしい #FJUG— mogaming (@_mogaming) October 24, 2019
