The GitHub League

As code constitutes more and more of the digital and physical worlds that we inhabit, the relevance of those who design and build that very world have begun to move into the cultural limelight. GitHub League imagines a moment where, much like baseball players, open source software engineers are collected, traded, and looked up to.

The GitHub League consists of the ten most active users within a one-year period, from August 24, 2014-August 25, 2015. In this context, “most active” means most commits to public repositories. We were inspired by, and based our ranking system off of, work by GitHub user paulmillr and his page.
