Ever wondered what it would be like to collect and trade your favorite GitHub heroes? Well now you can! Inspired by sports trading cards of old, GitHub League is the only collectible card series in existence that celebrates the heavy hitters of open source, collaborative, software engineering! Now you can get a piece of the action!
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 git.io/top page.
A limited-edition run of cards was printed, to be sold at the Internet Yami-Ichi Art Fair in New York City on September 12, 2015
