Not My Idea

Not My Idea is a micro 'application' that finds all the projects a given user has contributed to that were not their own.


A developer's github profile can tell you a lot about the things they are interested in and what their capable of. However, I think another good bit of information to know about a developer is how willing they are to contribute to projects/ideas that are not their own.

You can also see how involved in a community and a rough idea of what other developers think about each other by seeing how many other projects a developer's code is accepted to.
