Those in the web industry contribute and learn in a lot of disconnected places. We share knowledge on StackOverflow and pick up new skills on CodeAcademy. We share our open source projects on BitBucket and read the latest trends on HackerNews. With this distribution of interactivity it's difficult to gather together a true sense of an individual.
Coderbits is a site that tries to solve the problem by aggregating all of that big data to create visualizations and award badges. Below are a few charts that show you what James is all about by letting his actions online tell the story.
James is a supporter of open source projects, whether they're just personal websites or amazing utilities or mobile games. Opening your code helps others learn, promotes collaboration, and is a fantastic way to share exactly what you can do.
