Brian Douglas is a member of the Developer Relations team at GitHub where I work on the increasing use of GitHub and its API by fostering a community of early adopters through the developer programs. In the past, he’s lead Developer Advocacy and Front-end development at Netlify, where I sat in a hybrid role as Frontend Engineer and Developer Advocate.

Today I find a lot of enjoyment encouraging folks to get involved in Open Source, through my project Open Sauced.

Super excited to get mentioned in a YouTube video, npm check-engine - Issues With Brian, on the Open Sauced official YouTube channel by the one and only Brian Douglas! πŸ•

A short video, going over @open-sauced#1141, a minor update to our global tooling across @open-sauced repositories, enforcing strict node and npm versions for contributors, both locally and on CI. πŸš€

It's all done using open-sauced/check-engines, a new repository that is freely available to the world, an idea that wasn't mine but felt like a natural solution to open-sauced/open-sauced#1140! 🍰

Excited for 2022!!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

GitHub Copilot is now available on neovim. I walked through the setup and teach it how to exit VIM.
