Github data on Google BigTable & github visualization competition.

A massive github dataset is available through Google’ BigTable API. The details of how to access it are discussed on the Github blog.

Github held a data visualization competition in 2012 and is hold one again this year, in 2013. This entry on Github programming languages  by Eduarda Mendes Rodrigues is interesting in terms of metacommunity: http://zoom.it/kCsU#full.

We might think about the much commented predominance of Javascript on Github. Almost everyone mentions that, but they don’t say why. Is Javascript so important, or is it like a form of coding noise?
