The best teams need the best tools. CI/CD is a critical part of every team's software delivery pipeline, but managing the pipeline for tons of projects can get messy and confusing. Join us to learn how to use orbs to create reusable configuration packages, and connect your favorite tools to your CI process.

Our first-ever Orb-a-palooza will teach you how to add an orb to a CircleCI configuration file. Learn about the benefits of having a repeatable and extensible CI configuration format for your development team's processes and explore the possible integrations that you can add to your project or build yourself.



To be considered for a prize, you must create a new CircleCI orb, or enhance an existing orb. We encourage ambitious projects; while complete orbs are preferable, projects that are not yet fully functional but have a strong, actionable roadmap will still be considered.
