How to find your Open source contributions

I don’t contribute to the open source tools that I use as often as I would like. I don’t work for the kinda company that gives me that kinda free time. I do on occasion fix some documentation or add a small feature or bug fix. If you want to see your “contributions” you can just click on your profile in GitHub. Scroll down until you see this chart.

Jenkins status checks sans webhooks

Jenkins the once dominant CI/CD work horse has taken a back seat as of late. Not because it’s less powerful then its competition but because they have lowered the barrier to entry. One place where tools like Travis-CI, Circle-CI and Gitlab-CI excel at are ease of use. I guess Gitlab is not in the cool kids club =/ A very basic need for most teams is the ability to block a feature branch from being merged that doesn’t meet certain requirements.
