Welcome back to another one of our Community Roundups, folks! This week, we saw plenty of newcomers tweeting about their first experiences with Bitrise, as well as some pretty great recommendations going around. Let’s see what we’ve got in store for you this time, shall we?
Articles of the week
This week, we saw an article from Takano over at Lanchester, who wrote a summary of our visit over at the company’s blog (in Japanese). We’re so glad you enjoyed our visit, and thank you for both the hospitality and the kind words. Cheers!

The other article we had this week was from Khalis Afkari, who published a snippet about us in Indonesian, in which he talked about getting started with Bitrise CI when it comes to Android apps. Thanks for putting this together, Khalis!
Goodies of the week
This week, Jens Klingenberg shared an app he wrote, which uses the Bitrise API to access the projects and builds. Great stuff, Jens — thanks for taking the time to do this!

Tweets of the week
This week’s first tweet comes from Nobuhiro Ito, who, when talking about the book he just released, also mentioned that he switched his CI setup over to Bitrise not so long ago, and has been through quite a number of builds since then. Happy to hear everything’s going well, Nobuhiro.
ちなみに土曜にCIをBitriseに切り替えてから約100回ビルドした。— いせ@技術書典7 い13C[プッシュ通知本出します] (@iseebi) September 11, 2019
Next up is a collage of pictures from Nikolett Pankovits, who met us over at try!Swift NYC last week. Thanks for sharing these, Nikolett — we’re glad to see you had so much fun over there.
My nerd side was fulfilled in the past few days:
I met a great group of people, learnt a lot from great developers, felt proud of having @bitrise.io, a Hungarian startup being one of the sponsors of @tryswift
Thanks to @NatashaTheRobot, the whole team and @twitter! #tryswift pic.twitter.com/5MsickA9CB— Nikolett Pankovits (@NikiPankovits) September 11, 2019
Next, we have a thread originating from Eg_19_, who was having a bit of trouble deciding what service to use. Hiromasa Suzuki quickly came to the rescue, and recommended Bitrise as an easy and intuitive option, and even linked an article as a starting guide. We’re hoping you find everything to your liking, Eg_19_ — let us know if we can help you get started in any way!

Our next few tweets are about an activity of ours that has seen a lot of attention lately— releasing almost instantaneous support for new Xcode versions! A huge thanks goes out to everyone who praised us for it yet again. Here’s our favorite few from the bunch.
Wow thats fast! You’re awesome @bitrise ❤️— Stefan Herold (@Blackjacxxx) September 11, 2019
BitriseにXcode 11 GMきたー！ありがてえありがてえ— おえねこ (@n3k0w3n) September 11, 2019
Damn that’s fast! 🏎🏎🏎 https://t.co/OZpc9xX3f2— Paul Hudson (@twostraws) September 11, 2019
I’m always impressed with how fast they have new versions available.— Michael Fransen 🏳️🌈 (@michaelfransen) September 11, 2019
The Xcode 11 GM is now available on Bitrise というメールが来てた。相変わらず Bitrise は対応早いな〜— Kosuke Ogawa🌖アルエンジニア🌖宮崎 (@koogawa) September 11, 2019
Xcode 11 GMが出たので大喜びで開発中のアプリの11対応とBitrise設定をしようとしている。うーん有意義— h1d3mun3 (@h1d3mun3) September 13, 2019
Our next one comes from Tomoya Shibata, who shared just how much he appreciates our fast response times. That’s great to hear, Tomoya — hope you’re having tons of fun using Bitrise!
Bitrise くんほんとうに対応早くておののく— バトルプログラマー柴田智也🔄🍣ミリ 6th SSA 両日現地 (@tomoya_shibata) September 11, 2019
Next up is a pair of tweets, from t0m0120, and hmktsu, both of whom were featured in our last community roundup, and both of whom talked about just how much they would love some Bitrise swag. We might be able to help you with that — since both of you wrote articles about us already, you’d be great candidates for our Writers’ Program! If you’d like to join, please let us know through our webpage’s form, and we’ll get a neat swag package going your way in no time. 🎁
俺も載ってたからほしいっす！— ハムカツおじさん🤘🎮🥟 (@hmktsu) September 11, 2019
Our next tweet comes from Letsspeak, who just started using Bitrise, and got the feeling of it being the strongest CI environment ever, right off the bat. It’s great to have you on board — let us know how your project goes.
きのう久しぶりにbitrise触ったら俺が考えた最強のCI環境みたいなのがそこにはあって、あーbitriseを再発明するお仕事したいなと思った。日本で再発明する意味あるのか知らんけど誰か金くれないかなーただただやりたい— 初音ミク (@letsspeak) September 13, 2019
Next is a tweet from Naoki85, another new user of ours, who commented on how easy it was to get started with the platform. Happy to hear, Naoki85 — keep us updated on your progress!
bitrise、余計なことしなくてもすでに go が入ってた。— naoki85 (@naoki85_201612) September 13, 2019
Niklas Amslgruber also started using Bitrise this week, and tweeted out his excitement for getting to work on his iOS workflow’s automation. Hope it goes well, Niklas.
Signed up to @bitrise, excited to start automating my iOS workflow...— Niklas Amslgruber (@nikiamslgruber) September 13, 2019
Next up is a thread that started with a couple of pictures from Eric Lewis, who was just after a good end-of-summer cleaning. In response to this, Danilo Figueiredo asked whether Eric preferred Bitrise when it comes to React Native apps — and we’re proud to say he gave a firm yes. He wasn’t alone, though — Milan Šušnjar also commented that he agrees (and so did we, to be fair). We wanted to thank you both for using Bitrise, and hope that Danilo gives us a shot as well!
Do you prefer to use @bitrise for React Native apps?— Danilo Figueiredo (@grifotv) September 14, 2019
I do.— Eric Lewis (@ericlewis) September 14, 2019
Me three.— Milan Šušnjar (@milansusnjar_) September 14, 2019
Our next one is another thread, this time from CompileSwift, who gave us a great shoutout. Steven Sherry seemed to agree that we’re way better than the alternatives, and CompileSwift added that we were “amazingly simple to setup by comparison”. That means a lot to us, folks — we really appreciate all the kind words.
Wayyyyyyyyyyyyy better than Jenkins.— Steven Sherry (@steven_0351) September 16, 2019
A round of applause is in order for our next tweet: the folks over at Teleportr hit build version #1000 this week with their app! Needless to say, we’re overjoyed to be able to help all your hard work come to fruition, and hope that we’ll be able to save you many more hours to come in the future.
We just hit build version #1000 🎉 A huge thank you to the team at @bitrise, who have already saved us ~1500 hours and let us focus on what's really important—beating the boss at ping pong!🏓— Teleportr (@TeleportrHQ) September 16, 2019
Last but not least, we saw a tweet from Kazy, who, at the time, was just thinking about giving us a try in combination with fastlane, which he’s already familiar with. Hope everything went well — don’t forget to give us an update on how you liked Bitrise!
fastlaneしか使ったことないんですが、bitrise人気なので一緒に使ってみようと思います！— [email protected]エンジニアFlutter勉強中 (@kazy_developer) September 17, 2019
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!
