GitHub Case Study: NASA Jet Propulsion (JPL)
Collaboration is an integral part of the work done at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, however for a long time collaboration on software development was fractured within the organization. Different teams were duplicating engineering work because they had no good way to see what others were doing or keep up with different projects between teams. So they set up a GitHub for everyone within their Operations Laboratory and slowly pulled in users over several months. This situation was unique because since they had no method for collaboration before, so there was nothing to get in the way to bringing the whole community together through this instance. The fact that GitHub can integrate with many tools, and support many different projects means that it was the perfect choice for their developers.

GitHub Case Study: HubSpot
HubSpot was looking to decrease the number of tools their development team was using, while at the same time being able to scale as they grew larger. It was also important to not compromise on the level of security they required. GitHub was able to help HubSpot accomplish all three of their queries. With their open source platform through GitHub its made the development process simpler, while creating the transparency between teams, helped them prepare to grow these teams as their business did. They have also used the GitHub platform to build several of their own internal automation services; one called Babel works to trigger a translation workflow anytime a developer commits language changes.
