The 2022 December CI Challenge

Advent Calendars and Advent Code Challenges are all the rage these days.

I am going to combine the ideas and write an article every day on how I configured Continuous Integration for an Open Source project and I would like to challenge you to do the same!

This is going to be a series of articles (and videos) on setting up Continuous Integration (CI) for Open Source projects.

Each day during December 2022 (well, at least till the 25th) I am going to configure CI for an open source project.

Every day I'll try to find something different. A different programming language, a different VCS hosting service, maybe some different extras that are needed (a database, etc.)

However this challenge is not only for me. I hope that you will also join me on this crazy journey, find a project that does not have CI yet, write some test if there are non, set up the CI, send the pull-request, and then post a link to it as a comment on the days post.

The VCS hosting services: I know most of the open source projects are hosted on GitHub. A lot less on GitLab. I'd be glad to hear about other hosting services where there are Open Source projects.

Where can you find projects? You can search for them on the web site of the VCS hosting service or on one of the digger
projects I've been building. The currently existing projects are PyDigger for Python, CPAN Digger for Perl, and the Ruby Digger for, well, Ruby.

Let's get started!

If you are interested to participate, follow me, and comment below which (programming) languages are you interested the most. If you have suggestion for specific project, link to the repositories of those as well!

🌱 We built an open source tool called Forem.

It powers everything you see on DEV, and you can contribute to the codebase or host your own.
