Monitoring GitHub issue tickets through automated tagging

The Phusion team open sourced their customer support product –Support Central– which pulls in support requests from different channels, including GitHub Issues. GitHub tagging through Support Central allows our bootstrapped team to get a quick overview of which tickets are potentially blocked, rather than us periodically scrolling through the list and re-reading all the tickets. Perhaps your team will find it as useful as they do.

⚡️ Let's Encrypt strikes again, this time in your GitHub Pages

Parker Moore, on GitHub's blog: Today, custom domains on GitHub Pages are gaining support for HTTPS as well, meaning over a million GitHub Pages sites will be served over HTTPS. What's more: We have partnered with the certificate authority Let’s Encrypt on this project. As supporters of Let’s Encrypt’s mission to make the web more secure for everyone, we’ve officially become Silver-level sponsors of the initiative. If your custom domain uses CNAME or ALIAS records, no action is required to go HTTPS. If (like me), you have a custom domain using A records, follow along here.

Analyzing GitHub issue comment sentiment with Azure

If you've been looking to dabble in some AI and serverless, Phil Haack shared his process to create a SentimentBot for GitHub issues with Azure Functions. Perhaps the combination of machine learning and human judgement could make the problem more tractable. I decided to play around with Azure Functions because they have specific support for GitHub Webhooks. GitHub Webhooks and Azure Functions go together like Bitters and Bourbon. If you want to skip the code and just test it out, head to this issue.

Automating new contributor issues with First Timers Bot

GitHub also has something like this as a standard in their docs. Hoodie has these super awesome first-timers-only issues that guide new contributors through the contribution process. The problem was that creating these step-by-step issues would usually take the maintainer longer than to do the fix themselves. So Gregor asked us to build a bot that would automate this process. And so First Timers was born! Listen to The Changelog #264 to get the full back story on Probot

GitHub's technology predictions for 2018

It's the time of year for 2017 wrap-ups and 2018 predictions. We expect these from bloggers and news sites, but this seems like an odd post coming from GitHub: Data is on the rise, placing an even greater emphasis on security, cloud, and open source. Jason Warner, SVP of Technology, shares his predictions on the major technology trends for 2018. I wouldn't call too many of these predictions bold, but it'll be interesting to see how well they hold up.
