GitHub undoubtedly has the most popular repositories in the coding world. It isn’t just a code hosting service which offers version control — it also serves a huge network of developers across the world.
Currently, GitHub hosts over 30 million accounts, 2+ million organizations, and more than 96 million repositories, among which exist some of the world’s most valuable Git repos.
Do you ever wonder the value of the repositories hosted there or which ones make their way all the way to the top?
