A Commitment to Committing

If I can say one thing about working at Crowd Favorite, it’s that I’ve learned a lot about git and Github. From using the basic command line tools to working closely with submodules, I can say I understand git much more today than I did 3 months ago. Earlier this week, my friend Colin challenged me to 30 weekdays of committing to projects on Github. Starting today, I will take him up on that.

Now, this is actually going to be pretty easy considering I’ve committed code just about work day since I started at Crowd Favorite, so there are a few stipulations:

  1. I clarified with Colin- I am not exempt for Christmas, so I will be making a commit on Christmas.
  2. At least 2 days a week, I will commit to my own side projects. The big contender right now is a new WordPress theme I’m working on called Parsec, which will be the focus of my 2015 WordCamp talk.
  3. Over the next 30 days, I will start open-sourcing a bunch of my side projects.

You can keep an eye on me here: I’m jcasabona on Github. Want to join? Leave your github repo in the comments! I’ll make a gist of everyone participating and their start dates.
