Dynamics of Open Source Communities (GitHub)

This project is a collaboration with Henry Price from Imperial College.

In this project, we study the 7,000 most popular repositories from GitHub to quantify the universal organizational principles behind large-scale self-organized communities, and how these principles underlie project success. We observe that large communities converge to a self-organized organization pattern with a universal scale-free contribution pattern, reminiscent of self-organized criticality observed in a large number of complex systems.
