Looks like GitHub is pushing out new contributor badges.
It looks like this.
Have you made it into the GitHub arctic code vault? ❄️ Share a screenshot!

Timeless DEV post...
It's not Python or HTML.
It hardly even gets mentioned in interviews or listed as a pre-requisite for jobs.
I'm talking about Git and version control of course.

I contributed to a repository in the GitHub arctic code vault, but I didn't get the badge. I was too late
But why Arctic? I couldn't understand the reason behind this naming. I am part of it too.
It’s because they are literally storing it in the Arctic. ❄️⛄️
Come on. Lol.
Oh wow, I forgot about the Arctic Vault thing.
I made it! All I did was remove some urls from documentation. (domains had expired, and the new owner redirected them to adult content).
I never applied for the program, wasnt even aware of it, but still i received the message :"You contributed code to the 2020 GitHub Archive Program and now have a badge for it. Thank you for being part of the program!" I find this very suspicious. I really hated it when Microsoft acquired GitHub. I wish GitHub remained fully independent; now with these data hungry companies that want to track spy and know everything what can we expect. Microsoft bought GitHub that bought in turn NPM, I really dont feel at ease with all that.
They gave the badge to everyone who contributed to any open source project, even if it's your own repos. But in the badge they only mention the top 3 starred repos you contributed to, so eh, it's nice to have I guess.
I'm apart of it.
I'm there too :)
Btw, does anyone know if there's a way to see the full list of projects that have been included? As a contributor to several open-source projects, I'd like to see the full list instead of a generic "and more".
I needed some good news. I didn't expect this good of news, though.
I'll take it - seriously, this made my day.
I've recently joined github in June, Can I earn my badge on/after 02/02/2021?
I didn't realize the importance of the badge until my friend shared a video of this. Feels pretty good knowing that my code is going to be stored for like 1000 years 😇
This is the repo: github.com/ChintuKarthi/data_store...
Woow, my learning journey with Apache kafka well be documented for next generations !!
Such a great Honour :D
Apparently my code is also important... 🤣
I am surprised this came up in my profile
Thanks for sharing, Even I've got one :) !
