According to the GitHub report, about ninety-seven percent of open source software is used in social applications.
Open source software is a type of software in which the user is permitted to share the source code of the software and the copyright holder grants the user permission to use, examine, modify, and to transfer it to anyone and for any purpose.
Almost everything these days is powered by an open source software system. An incredible 97% of apps and 90% of businesses use open source to some degree. In 2022, GitHub massively contributed to the same source of the software itself.
In the view of Martin Woodward, vice president of business development, open source software services form the basis of all software in use today. Open source offers several advantages, including a fast and flexible work culture and the possibility of global cooperation between developers. He believes that the chances of advancement increase when we all work collectively instead of dividing ourselves into groups or individuals. Additionally, the open source environment is changing and positively affecting creators, businesses, and other institutions around the world.
Companies around the world are interested in OSS. They are determined to establish open source software groups and offices to cooperate with the OSS plan. Therefore, when well-known organizations start adopting an open-source system, more people will be able to participate in it, support it, and benefit from it.
The report claims that GitHub is trying to increase the number of developers, regardless of background, background, or qualifications. The increase of 92.2 million developers over the last ten years is proof of the continued expansion of the GitHub system.
