Today we're releasing a small improvement to our definition of 90-day rolling averages for active code time.
To better understand how much time you spend coding during a typical day, your 90-day rolling average now includes days when you did not spend time coding.
As developers, we know that we are often responsible for a variety of non-coding tasks at work, such as meetings, code reviews, and project planning. As a result, most developers don’t code every day. We hope to better reflect in our metrics the reality that many developers face at work.
For example, if you coded for several hours on Monday, but had long meetings on Tuesday and were not able to code, both days will now be included in your 90-day average. Previously, your 90-day rolling average only included days when you spent time coding.
Note that we're updating our algorithm for rolling averages, but your total active code time each day will remain unchanged. As always, you can browse your historical data in your dashboard.
