GitHub expands support into Europe

Written by 

GitHub adds new operations in UK, Holland, France and Germany to expand and support double-digit growth of its enterprise platform in Europe

Code sharing platform GitHub now has over 9.5 million users worldwide and will be officially expanding their business into Europe with support teams now in place across the UK, Holland, Germany and France.

The European market is a growth area for software development and GitHub figures reflect this with some 36% of their users based in Europe compared to 35% in the US. With the UK, France and Germany representing the largest user bases in Europe and London, Paris and Stockholm topping the list of European cities most active on GitHub.

Additionally the GitHub Enterprise platform is also experiencing strong growth, with user numbers in the UK rising by 39% from 2013 to 2014, while Germany has increased by 38% and France by 41%.

Commenting on the figures and expansion Brian Doll, VP of Strategy said “For a long time GitHub data has been showing us that we really need a strong physical presence in Europe to support our user base here. In terms of user sessions, European users have been more active than in any other region of the world.”

Doll concluded “Today’s news follows the launch last week of our first international office in Japan – a reflection of the growing demand for software development globally. But while that news was hugely significant to our business and reflects the way we’re both responding to and driving the global software economy, without Europe, GitHub wouldn’t be here. The roots of Git lie in Europe, and we’ve every expectation that Europe will continue to be a hotbed of amazing projects, skilled developers and game-changing developments.”
