GSA’s 18F Assembles Open Source Code Repositories on GitHub

digital governmentThe General Services Administration‘s 18F organization has assembled repositories that contain open source code on its GitHub account in an effort to help federal government employees reuse the code for their work and personal use.

Britta Gustafson, content designer at 18F, wrote in a blog post published Wednesday that the code repositories include client projects, guides, prototypes and open source tools 18F plans to adapt.

The U.S. Digital Service worked to develop the code in a “free and open source software” model as a part of the public domain, according to Gustafson.

18F currently works to identify generic components of its project and detach them from the applications they are created for, Gustafson added.

“If you’re interested in volunteering to contribute to our work, these projects are in varying stages of development and would generally benefit from external expertise — feel welcome to open issues and pull requests,” Gustafson wrote.
