Mid 2016 we found that people were regularly bringing this objective to life, whether it be experimenting with new techniques, organising a learning lunch, presenting at meetups, all with a positive impact on the rest of the team. But we were lacking a way to naturally yet formally thank, reward and recognise each other.
With the introduction of PragmaThanks we now have a cadence to allow reflection and public acknowledgement:
Day to day make a public shoutout on Slack using “PragmaThanks @gtramontina for organising Friday’s Dojo, so many learnings on TDD. ” All PragmaThanks are automatically logged within a Google Sheet At our 8 weekly offsite we lead with the PragmaThanks ceremony, each formally rewarded PragmaPoint, is gifted as $100 for the recipient to spend on education, conferences, subscriptions PragmaThanks has been incredibly successful, so much so that “PragmaThanks” has formed part of our vocab, both verbally and within Slack dialogue. In our two months we collectively shared 130 PragmaThanks. Below are examples of the great work from the team.
To ensure you're using the correct node.js version, run this command first:

Then you can install the dependencies.
$ make install
$ make test
Turn on the Google Sheets API
In order to play around with google API it also required to setup a project on Google Developers Console. Use this wizard to create or select a project in the Google Developers Console and automatically turn on the API. You can also follow the step by step guide an learn how to get all those credentials. At the end you must export them as environment variables as follows:
# setup to deploy with claudia.js export AWS_REGION='<VALUE>' export FUNCTION_NAME='<VALUE>' export CLAUDIA_LAMBDA_ROLE='<VALUE>' export CLAUDIA_LAMBDA_NAME='<VALUE>' export CLAUDIA_API_ID='<VALUE>' # setup for reading data from google sheets export GOOGLE_CLIENT_ID='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_CLIENT_SECRET='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_PROJECT_ID='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_AUTH_URI='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_TOKEN_URI='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_AUTH_PROVIDER_CERT_URL='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_REDIRECT_URIS_FIRST='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_REDIRECT_URIS_LAST='<VALUE>' export SPREADSHEET_ID='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_ACCESS_TOKEN='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_REFRESH_TOKEN='<VALUE>' export GOOGLE_TOKEN_EXPIRY_DATE=<time in miliseconds>
$ make run username=yourname
Deploy to AWS Lambda + API Gateway:
$ make deploy
There are many ways to contribute, such as fixing opened issues, creating them or suggesting new ideas. Either way will be very appreciated.
