Over the holidays I’ve created a GitHub organization for Programmer Map. If you’re not familiar with Programmer Map: Programmer Map allows you to find programmers worldwide and near you. It is currently in beta and provides a ranking of the best programmers and projects for 20 cities worldwide. Check my portfolio or the site.
Within the new organization I have created repositories for several cities and included the rankings of the best programmers as well as the best projects. They are in the form of “awesome” lists. Awesome lists are repositories that contain a list of interesting links for a specific topic, for example awesome-d3. Similarly, I have created awesome lists for the cities currently on programmermap.com which can be freely extended by anyone. For example, I’ve started with the repository for Karlsruhe and added several links to startups and interesting companies and institutions. Feel free to do the same for any city you’d like!
