a decade of code (2009-2019)

Below is a chart that represents 10 years of concentrated effort.

I started using Github in 2009, which was also the year that I landed my first full-time coding gig.

robotlegs was the project I worked on and contributed to heavily for a full year. It was a ton of fun, great tech, and I owe so much to the other amazing people involved in that effort. ❤️

Then it all stops and there is a period from 2010 through 2013 where I barely contributed any code to Github. That's when I went to work as a consultant and most of the work was behind corporate firewalls and committed to SVN.

In August of 2013 my contribution graph really heats up! 🔥

That's when I started working on egghead.io which is what I've been doing for the 6 years since.

It makes me smile when I see it.

I send articles and thoughts occasionally and love to have conversations with folks. Lots of people like them, and I'd love to learn what you think as well. You can always unsubscribe.
