Nov 21, 2011 Android App Development
Android App developers certainly have a treat waiting for them. Ever wondered how the development in AOSP (Android Open Source Project) from Cupcake to Ice Cream Sandwich would look like if it was visually represented? Look no further, as YouTube user xcco3x has put together a video of Android Development from March 2009 to the present day.
A brief Description from xcco3x about the video:
The graph represents the source tree. Non-leaf nodes are directories and leaf nodes are files where their color represents the type of file. Files appear as they are modified and disappear if they are not touched for 2.5 seconds.
In other words, each “blast” from a user is a commit. These commits come from both Googlers and contributors. The data was taken from stitching together the logs of all the many AOSP projects. It does not include the external/* and prebuilt/* projects which are dependencies of Android.
This visualization was created with gource – http://code.google.com/p/gource.
