I’ve been working on a site for the past month that generates 3D models from Github’s contribution graphs.
After a month of work, it’s complete! So, I’m happy to announce GitTrophy. It’s pretty slick: type in a Github user or repo name, and you’ll get a 3D preview of the contribution model. I 3D printed my chart from 2016, and it turned out pretty well.

This past week was SGDQ 2017, the latest GamesDoneQuick charity speed-run marathon. For the past year, I’ve been managing an unofficial stats page for these events called GDQStat.us. This is the third event that I’ve hosted this site, and a lot has changed in this iteration.
