GitHub is the largest host in the world for open source projects. Developers from all over the world fork and work on countless projects hosted on it. GitHub's search box is a powerful tool that allows developers to find open source projects in areas they are interested in and where they can immediately start to contribute. GitHub also has a page dedicated solely at exploring and finding open source projects, grouping them by each topic they cover.
