Inventing code

This recent paper in Nature Communications is a really cool (source):

We analysed a database of 21,745,538 lines of computer code in total and 483,173 unique lines, originating from 47,967 entries to 19 online collaborative programming competitions organised over the course of 14 years by the MathWorks software company. In every contest, the organisers set a computational challenge and, over the course of one week, participants developed and provided solutions in the form of MATLAB® code.

Figure 3 is amazing.
