I pushed code to GitHub 6,000 Times in the Last Year

I’ve made 6,000 GitHub commits this year. 


See look:

You can even check at https://github.com/codebydom


And by “I”, I mean the bot I programmed to automatically make commits every hour of every day.


It changes the time on the website every hour to track the last commit, no really, look here: https://codebydom.github.io/git-some/ 


The purpose of this software is nothing more than to automatically fill in my commit calendar on my profile.


And to prove the point that you can be very minimally productive but still have a lot of commits, the number of commits/contributions a programmer has does not equate to productivity and skill level.


Also as a famous Bill Gates said "I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it."


Committing to GitHub isn’t hard, but doing it a few thousand times a year is, I wanted to find the easiest way to do that.
