Once I completed my interactive Git history, I started to think about a smaller visualization project that would allow me to experiment with new ways of visualizing large development histories.
In April I set out to create an interactive visualization of the Git distributed version control system. This became one of my larger projects, so I thought I'd share my experiences building it.
Recently, I came across this excellent interview with the graphic designer Peter Saville describing the origin of Joy Division's famous cover for Unknown Pleasures. I decided to recreate the visual form of the image using open source project commit histories, including VSCode, React, TensorFlow, and Git itself.
How quantifying Cost of Delay can help teams successfully understand and prioritize their technical project backlog.
This final post in my series on how I created the visualizations in my Visual Studio Code 2020 Year in Review covers how I recreated the "volume chart" from Nicholas Felton's 2013 Annual Report.
Recently I decided to continue my experiments visualizing the data produced by the software development process. This time I decided to dig into the git commit history of Git itself, with the goal of creating something interesting and creative that still provides information about the subject matter.
