Visualizing the Lolapps Codebase

As Lolapps has grown and our products evolved, our code base has followed suit. So, I thought one of the more interesting things to do would be go visualize the changes that have taken place over time.

In the video, each node represents files in our code repository. The little dots zipping all around the map are engineers making changes and working on the code. You can certainly see that we've grown over the years and can only imagine what will come next.

(btw, we're hiring)


  1. Congratulations! Excited to see what LOLapps has to bring in the future.

  3. Nice! This is insanely beautiful. Was it modeled in AS3? It looks like you rotate your engineers all over the code base. Does this visualization show the development of the code from conception? It's brilliant. You guys should have a podcast. I'd listen.
