A neat visualization of the work that the Federated Media Tech team (including me) has done over the last 14 months:
I put this together this afternoon using code_swarm. Andy uploaded it to Vimeo so the world can see: FM has tech!
Here’s a little explanation of what you are seeing:
This visualization, called code_swarm, shows the history of commits in a software project. A commit happens when a developer makes changes to the code or documents and transfers them into the central project repository. Both developers and files are represented as moving elements. When a developer commits a file, it lights up and flies towards that developer. Files are colored according to their purpose, such as whether they are source code or a document. If files or developers have not been active for a while, they will fade away. A histogram at the bottom keeps a reminder of what has come before.
In our case, red dots are PHP files, blue dots are HTML, CSS, and JS files, and turquoise dots are media files.
