Celebrating a big feature release with a distributed team can be difficult awesome.

We typically deploy dozens of times per day and ship new features regularly. We celebrate shipping several different ways, but for really big features we toast!

How to celebrate a big feature with GitHub

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 🚢s, cheers!
