A little kudos to GitHub

Recently while I was on GitHub I was asked to fill in a user survey. I only fill these in for sites I like and so I was happy to answer this one.

If you’ve been following this blog you know I launched a site to help people find GitHub repositories to contribute to. In the survey I mentioned I thought searching for repositories to contribute to could be enhanced.

There was a check box asking if I agreed to be contacted by GitHub. I checked it without really expecting anything to come out of it.

Well, a few days later I received an email with an invitation to a video chat with some friendly folks over at GitHub who wanted to know more.

It was a really nice experience, very friendly. The two people from GitHub (I don’t know if they want to be named so I’ll respect their privacy) were really attentive to what I had to say, more than I would have expected. I feel they really went the extra mile having checked out my GitHub profile, this blog, dispatcher and what I did for a living beforehand.

Hopefully my views on the matter helped them along in their own reflections on how to improve GitHub.
