New Google site showcases open source projects
Google is known for being involved with a lot of open source projects, Android being one of the most notable.
The new site, as reported by The Next Web, is called Google Open Source and features more of Google’s open source projects such as a JPEG encoder that reduces file sizes by 35 percent.
Apart from showing off their projects, the site also showcases some of Google’s preferred tools that other programmers can use in their own projects. There is also a directory of projects that Google has made available to the community.
There are even documentations on how Google uses, contributes and releases open source code so that other companies can follow in Google’s footsteps.
The Google Open Source website is now live and is currently hosting more than 2,000 open source projects. Alfred Bayle/JB
