What topped the GitHub charts in 2015

The head of open source at GitHub, Brandon Keepers, said that the repository viewed 2015 as the “tipping point” for open source. In 2016, it looks forward to “strong and diverse communities on GitHub helping make open source even more accessible.

“With important technologies from companies like Apple and Microsoft released on GitHub this year, it is clear that the future of modern software development is built on open source.”
