Git Shots, Chronicles of Coding – Short Film

How it started

Late last year I was browsing around on Coderwall and came across a cool idea to take a picture of yourself using your webcam everytime you commit some code to git. For the non-technical person, this means that every time you make some changes to a project you are working on, you get to take a shameless seflie! What better way to connect the programmatic world to visual arts than this?

Six months and 302 commits later, after “filming” non-stop all over the world, and by all over the world I mean at work, on the BART, at home and other random places in the San Francisco Bay Area since August of 2013, I am proud to present you my short film, “Git Shots, Chronicles of Coding”.

Interested in remembering every one of your commits?

Setting it up was a challenge due to the fragmented information scattered among many different sources, so I ended up writing a blog post on how to set it up yourself.

Enjoy and please help spread the word by sharing.
