The IMA software developers have been using revision control software to manage their code for some time now (as all good developers should). Think of it like Time Machine for your Mac. We save (a.k.a commit) our code at many points in time so we can roll back to any of those points later if needed. Recently we rolled over 10,000 commits which got me wondering what’s happened during that time. I stumbled across some tools a while back that can visualize these software repositories.
