I was asked to put together some figures (for fun) to use on a new careers page. Taking a loose interpretation of fun, I wondered how many builds we’ve ever run on CircleCI. Luckily, it was pretty easy to find out using their API and a REPL I had handy.
Interestingly, without specifying
Accept: application/json, it
looked like I was getting a Clojure data structure in the
reponse. Telling clj-http to
coerce the body
:as :clojure didn’t work, so I left it at that.
Long story short – it turns out we’ve done 16,721 builds across all our projects!
