Nice article, I agree with it. As someone looking for my first dev job, I try to keep my GH activity up as I heard some hiring managers look at it. I think the culture should definitely change.

Work on projects, try to find an open source project, making meaningful commits! Not just for the sake of keeping your graph green.

github.com/mazipan/auto-commit do it for free with these.

Also, you don't had to make meaning full commits. Just make flow on your pace ~ you had a nice blog though keep it up! :D

Thanks for your thoughts Viren, and it must be stressful having to have that mindset because of, frankly, bad hiring managers. Coloured squares !== your value :D
