Google Launches opensource.google.com

Currently, Google has gone on to publish its first internal documentation about how and when to open-source its own technology. Small chunks of information kept cropping over the years but now this documentation is available for all to view under a Creative Common license.
 
In addition to this, the company has also gone on to post a catalog of its open source projects with descriptions on how Google itself uses the tools. There has never been anything like this published ever before.
 
Google states,
 
“Today, we’re launching opensource.google.com, a new website for Google Open Source that ties together all of our initiatives with information on how we use, release, and support open source.”
 
The new site contains all of Google’s programs, organizations that they support along with a comprehensive list of open source projects.
 
The company states,
 
“One of the tenets of our philosophy towards releasing open source code is that "more is better." We don't know which projects will find an audience, so we help teams release code whenever possible. As a result, we have released thousands of projects under open source licenses ranging from larger products like TensorFlow, Go, and Kubernetes to smaller projects such as Light My Piano, Neuroglancer and Periph.io. Some are fully supported while others are experimental or just for fun. With so many projects spread across 100 GitHub organizations and our self-hosted Git service, it can be difficult to see the scope and scale of our open source footprint.”
