GitHub launched in 2008 with the tagline, “Social Code Hosting,” but is GitHub a social coding network today?
To answer the question, no, GitHub is today's code collaboration platform. The developer network GitHub has built centralizes around private and open-source project collaboration. Though today their focus has broadened beyond being a social network, you must see the 100 million developers on the platform and think, why not call it a social network? The challenge for most contributors is the silo created when they only work in one or two repositories (probably private).
At OpenSauced, we are looking to break the barrier for contributors in open source with our newest feature, Open Sauced Highlights, ushering in a new phase of Social Coding.
Where an average contributor may contribute to one project during their career, we see an opportunity to highlight those contributions and share your experience with others. Whether you are just starting in open-source or the core maintainer of trpc/trpc, we would love to see your highlights.
Watch the demo of me creating my first highlight below
