GitHub Releases New Workflow Tools, 'Octoverse' Report
October 16, 2018 / Chris Preimesberger
The global open source code repository also released new security tools with the GitHub Security Advisory API, new ways to learn across teams with GitHub Learning Lab for organizations, and other items. Oh yes, it also released the annual "State of the Octoverse" report. GitHub held its Universe 2018 conference at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco Oct. 16, and it was quite a newsy event for the little gang of about 31 million developers who use the company’s 96 million repositories of open source code each day. Those numbers are correct. That’s how large and in charge open source software has been for more than a generation and here in the waning months of 2018.
