More than 850,000 Singaporean developers and over 48,300 Singaporean organisations are building on GitHub, according to Innovation Graph, its newly-launched open data and insights platform. The new platform records the global and local impact of developers dating back from the first quarter of 2020.

“For too long, measures of innovation have focused solely on things like patents and research papers, while policymakers and researchers have had trouble finding reliable data on global trends in software development. GitHub’s solution is the Innovation Graph,” said Mike Linksvayer, vice president, of developer policy, at GitHub.
Released as a data resource, the Innovation Graph provides data visualisations, a repository outlining GitHub’s methodology, longitudinal metrics on global software development, and quarterly data on git pushes, developers, organisations, repositories, languages, licenses, topics, and economy collaborators. Researchers, policymakers, and developers are then able to easily access data for research-based policies, and growth opportunities.
