Gone are the days when developers had to maintain multiple copies of a project to collaborate. Platforms such as GitHub now allow them to collaborate on a single version effortlessly, across distance boundaries. Among the gamut of resources available for software development, GitHub’s toolset is one of the most sought-after and widely used. Such collaborative tools like GitHub, which augment software engineers’ proficiency in implementing and deploying code changes, are quintessential for distributed agile development. This approach has gained more traction as the Covid-19 pandemic has led to more companies operating remotely.
Works and GitHub have shared a mutually beneficial partnership for several years now. Works has provided over twenty highly skilled software engineers from Asia to several of GitHub’s teams. This collaboration is timely for GitHub as the software development industry is experiencing remarkable growth in emerging countries. As a part of a broader strategy, GitHub has rightly chosen to double down on these regions for its expansion efforts.
GitHub aims to bolster its investment in international growth by the close of 2023. To achieve this goal, the platform has established a dedicated team to adapt the platform rapidly and cater to new countries proficiently. This team will emphasize incorporating localization support into the platform to seamlessly integrate new currencies and languages.
GitHub benefits from the agile support of Works’ personnel in conjunction with the availability of remote full-time staff, giving the organization the ability to quickly and proficiently build a new team.
