Origin By The Numbers — Developer Update
We hold weekly engineering meetings in public, and most of our meeting notes and project boards are public as well.
We were pleased to be recognized by ConsenSys recently as one of the most active projects in blockchain. ConsenSys is an important and influential organization in the Ethereum community, so we appreciated their shout-out. At Origin, we pride ourselves on openness, both with our open-source code and our transparent culture of open collaboration. We hold weekly engineering meetings in public, and most of our meeting notes and project boards are public as well. We are incredibly proud to have so many open-source contributors and have made several of them full-time employees. We thought this would be a great time to share some numbers about our development with the broader community.
As of this writing, Origin’s main repository has over 6,306 commits with 35 branches and over 149 contributors. In the last month alone there have been over 97 pull requests merged by 10 people. This represents 582 files changed and 67,849 added lines of code on the master branch.
Our top ten most active developers hail from a variety of backgrounds and we are honored to receive their contributions. They include a recent university graduate from Alabama, a former real estate broker from Oklahoma, and one of the original co-founders of PayPal.
One of the things we are most excited about is that we are accelerating our pace of product development while adding valuable members of the open-source community to our full-time and part-time ranks. We wouldn’t be able to do this without all of these talented developers across the world working tirelessly to constantly improve the platform. Thank you!
