The most evident and boring pattern: I don't have any commits on weekends.

Notes

  1. I don't embrace the erroneous idea that "commits/pull requests/review per day" is a useful metric for productivity. This is just my first exercise at data visualization.
  2. Source is my employer's private GitHub Enterprise data. Maybe I will do one for my public GH data next.
  3. The code (SVG, CSS) for the charts is taken or adapted from the GitHub Enterprise code, so © where © is due. Please don't sue me :(
