GitHub, the world's largest software development platform, plans to open a branch in China, according to Financial Times.
GitHub, hosting and managing software development for private companies, was acquired by Microsoft for $7.5 billion last year. It is the world's largest open source software project, and anyone can participate.
Erica Brescia, GitHub ’s chief operating officer said that the company plans to enter China in stages, first considering setting up a wholly foreign-owned subsidiary in China and recruiting employees from the general manager level.
After that, the company may explore the possibility of joint ventures and hosting GitHub content in China, Erica said.
