## Hey, this is us 👋
![An illustration showing a variety of differently themed Octocats. Monuments from different cities are indicated in the background like the Space Needle, Berlin Fernsehturm and Transamerica Pyramid.](
Yes, we are building GitHub on GitHub. In fact, weve been doing this since **October 19th, 2007**. That's when we made our first commit. Since then we pushed **over 2.5 million commits**, opened **over 1 million issues**, submitted roughly **650k pull requests** across **4357 repositories** from over **50 countries** 🤯. But that's just us. We are proud to be part of the work of millions of developers, companies and robots across the solar system 🪐. Yes, [Robots](!
### 🍿 An interconnected community
The open source community is the 💗 heart of GitHub and fundamental to how we build software today. See for yourself:
- [GitHub Sponsors]( helped support more than **5k** individuals and projects around the world 🌍
- Open source projects on GitHub received a stunning **218 million** contributions 🚀 in the last year alone
- **Every minute** a developer creates a new release 🏄 for a public project on GitHub
Now that we are talking about the important things ☝️, are you contributing to open source? Yes? Okay, you rock! 🪨 If not, we can help you get started! Open source software is made by people just like you. Learn more about [how to contribute](
### 🦦 Contributing to the ecosystem
We contribute to the tools 🔧 we rely on to build and run GitHub, while also maintaining 🧙‍♂️ our own open source projects like:
- [GitHub CLI]( - A command line tool for GitHub
- [Git Large File Storage]( - A git extension for versioning large files
- [Primer]( - The GitHub design system
### 👓 Appendix
See what's next on our [public roadmap]( ✨ and [let us know]( if you have any suggestions 🙇‍♂️. Oh, and by the way, we are always hiring talented, passionate people to [join our team]( 🙌.
