We know that as developers the very last thing we look for is to be in a popularity contest. But what if the popularity is not based on your clothes, hair or Q&A skills? If you’re being recognized by your fellow geeks, your peers who really appreciate and understand what you do, it is actually pretty awesome.
This weekend we rolled out our “Popular” page which highlights this past weeks, months, and years top Users based on number of ^5’s, most ^5’d Achievement cards and the top open source Commit’ers pushing their code into the Geeklist network.
Here we find guys like Volkan Ozcelik, a JS hacker at SocialWire, creeping up to the top in 4th, Robert Kowalski of Jimdo in Gemany in 7th and in 2nd place is Nicolas Perriault, of Montpellier, France all in this past months Top 10 Commit’ers:
We also begin to surface and find many outstanding behind the scenes developers making a global impact, like Daniel Erickson. Daniel is a Yammer Sr JS Engineer:
He has made the Top 10 all time most ^5’s on Geeklist. I think this card helped:
How do you become a Top Geek in Geeklist? Well, the more Achievement Cards, Micros, GeekIt links, Photos and commits you share the more likely you are to get ^5’s, surfacing you to the top. Integrating with GitHub and pushing live your commits into repos linked with Geeklist will get you there in the Commiters column.
Keep on being Awesome! ^5 - The Geeklist Dev team!
