Codefresh Launches “Fixvember,” the Month-long, Do-it-from-home DevOps Hackathon

Bribes DevOps professionals with t-shirts to help open source projects build better software

Mountain View, CA, October 29, 2018 – For the month of November, Codefresh is bribing DevOps professionals with a cool, limited-edition t-shirt to contribute to open source for the first annual observance of “Fixvember.” The event encourages developers to make at least three contributions to open source projects, focused on making engineers more successful by following DevOps best practices, including:

  • Building automation
  • Adding better testing
  • Fixing bugs

Codefresh debuts Fixvember at in tandem with the launch of public-facing builds in the Codefresh platform. With a goal of fostering best practices for software development and the adoption of CI/CD processes,

Codefresh is offering 120 builds/month, private Docker Registry, Helm Repository, and Kubernetes/Helm Release management for free. To help teams get going, Codefresh is also offering a huge free tier within Codefresh with everything needed to do just that. Participation is not limited to those using Codefresh.

“I can’t promise the limited-edition t-shirt will increase in value, but if it does, I bet it will be worth $1,000 by next year. The FDA prevents me from promising any health benefits, but it’s possible this t-shirt will actually make you smarter,” joked Dan Garfield, Chief Technology Evangelist for Codefresh. “Software engineers sometimes have a hero complex that adding cool new features is the most valuable thing. But, being ‘Super Fresh’ means you do the dirty work that makes new features deploy successfully. Adding automated pipelines, writing tests, or even fixing bugs are the lifeblood of these projects.”
