or, How as a support engineer I wrote our most-used orb to date (and how you can too)
Experience In Open Source
If you’re a new developer, I’m here to encourage you to consider writing an orb. Orbs are a great way to add some open source experience to your resume while demonstrating most of the skills software engineering roles look for.
- Open source development experience
- Experience with continuous integration and continuous deployment
- Git and Bash experience
It’s really easy to hit all of these major points with a simple orb, even one that just posts messages to a Slack channel. This is, in fact, what I did build, and what I will discuss in this blog post.
