According to the report, more than 31 developers from 2.1 million organizations (40 percent more than last year) now use GitHub. They have more than 96 million repositories on the site, about a third of which were created in the last year. This year’s top open source projects include Visual Studio Code, React Native, TensorFlow, Angular CLI, Azure-Docs, Angular, Ansible, Kubernetes, NPM and DefinitelyTyped. Microsoft made the most open source contributions, followed by Google, Red Hat, UC Berkeley and Intel. Top languages were JavaScript, Java, Python, PHP and C++.
