Microsoft-owned open source developer platform GitHub has reached 100 million members globally.
GitHub has more than 10 million developers in India. This makes the country the second largest developer community on GitHub, behind the US.
In 2015, almost a third of developers on GitHub were from North America.
“In India alone, more than 10 million developers use GitHub to build software. In Brazil, over 3 million new developers use GitHub,” the company said.
GitHub predicts that users in India will match the current US GitHub developer population by 2025.
Microsoft Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella said that GitHub Copilot is the first at-scale AI product built for this era, fundamentally transforming developer productivity.
“More than 1 million people have used Copilot to date. This quarter, we brought Copilot to businesses, and we have seen strong interest and early adoption from companies, including Duolingo, Lemonade, and Volkswagen CARIAD Software Group. Now, on to Power Platform,” said Satya Nadella during the analysts call this week.
