GitHub is a remote platform that allows developers to work on code versions collaboratively. It offers a comprehensive range of tools to help manage the software development life cycle and is widely recognised as one of the most popular platforms in the world. With the onset of COVID-19, collaborative tools such as GitHub have become increasingly essential for distributed agile development, providing software engineers with the necessary collaboration tools to implement and release code updates continually.
Works and GitHub have enjoyed a successful collaboration for many years, with Works embedding more than twenty software engineers from Asia across several GitHub teams. As part of its growth strategy, GitHub is seeking to expand into new territories that have experienced a boost in their developer population.
By the end of 2022, GitHub has set a target to strengthen its global growth by enhancing the platform’s adaptability to new nations. As a result, a new team has been established to incorporate localisation support into the platform, enabling the rapid configuration of websites to accommodate different languages and currencies.
Works‘ flexibility allows GitHub to swiftly establish a new remote team consisting of full-time employees from around the world.
