Leading software development platform, GitHub has expanded its international operations to India, which has its third largest developer community. The idea behind opening an India office is to better serve the developer community and GitHub’s enterprise customers in the country. GitHub's community of developers in India is growing at a rate of 22% over the past year.
Erica Brescia, chief operating officer, GitHub, said, “As the third largest group of active developers on GitHub, Indian developers are truly building the future of software. Over the past year, the number of public repositories in India has grown 75 percent, demonstrating a sharp increase in collaboration across the Indian developer community. In building out a local team in India, our goal is to create stronger relationships with developers and support open source development across developers, maintainers, and enterprises.”
