It's very rare I can show and tell anything from my work at BlackBerry, but I think this will be safe enough: this is the 29,554 functions of code which make up the rendering of an email by the BB10 Cascades Email Card with arrowed lines drawn between them showing which calls which, arranged using a repulsing gravity equation such that most interconnected items cluster while less connected items push apart. As you can see, it looks like an octopus throwing a baseball (or something) which was my manager's choice of description. Still, it's amazing how organic computer code ends up looking when visualised this way: programming code (in this case C++) come to life before your eyes.
