I really don’t like how some people treat the activity graph as some kind of metric for how good of a developer you are. There are so many aspects of development that doesn’t get reflected.

Some people even gone lengths to negate the effect of the graph by using bots to create patterns, figures and text in there, just so you can’t use it for anything.

If people want to use git to evaluate your skills and dedications, they should dive into your actual commits, PRs, issue activities and code reviews. Not some aggregated metric by the platform that can be modified by simple scripts or bots.

I strong heartily agree. I’m still learning this industry and one thing that I’ve come to conclude is that there are a lot of misguided and “do this, not that” advice (good and bad). You REALLY have to do what you think is best and make it your best.
