When we ship a really big feature someone will kick off the celebration by creating a new issue in a special celebratory repository.
Everyone joins in by taking a photo of themselves with a beverage in hand, from a Worlds Best Dad coffee mug to a large bottle of Club Mate.
We add our photo to the issue by dragging it into the comment field.
The issue usually takes a day or so to make the rounds, since we have GitHubbers spread out all around the world.
Once everyone has sent in their toast, we run a simple script that generates an animated gif to mark the occasion.
Here’s to more :ship:s, cheers!
