Software development major GitHub has launched operations in India, clearly indicating the strength of the developer ecosystem in the country. GitHub is a place where developer communities learn, review codes and collaborate to build software. After the Unites States and China, India is the third-largest developer hub on GitHub, which has 40 million developers with over 100 million projects globally. GitHub also says it has wonderful opportunities in store for students in India.

“Our community in India is thriving, with the third-largest number of active developers on GitHub and 22% growth over the past year, adding to an already significant base. We saw 75% growth in public repositories here, which means more and more projects are getting created year-over-year in India, which is incredibly exciting. We saw a 500% growth in private repositories where developers have access to private development environments,” said Erica Brescia, chief operating officer, in a blog post.

GitHub's student developer pack offers over $200,000 of benefits, including access to tech that they can use for free.

“India is also home to one of the largest communities of student developers in the world. Investing in the future of open source by empowering students is key to our efforts. We’re thrilled to announce that GitHub Education is extending our popular GitHub Hackathon Grant program to students in India, which supports student hackathons with up to $1,000 in grants,” Brescia said.

Maneesh Sharma, the newly appointed General Manager of GitHub India, will lead its growth strategy in the country. "Over the next few months, we’re building a team across all functions—including community, engineering, sales, support, marketing, and services—to enable our customers to adopt DevOps best practices at scale and collaborate with over 40 million developers across more than 100 million projects," Brescia 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," Brescia said in the blog.
