US Government Launches Code.gov To Showcase Its Open Source Software

Source

An anonymous reader shares a VentureBeat report:_ The White House has announced the launch of Code.gov, a website that shows off U.S. government open-source projects and offers relevant resources for government agencies. By launching this site the White House is hoping to improve public access to the government’s software and encourage the reuse of software across government agencies. The launch comes four months after the White House introduced the Federal Source Code policy, which specifically mandates that government agencies make custom-developed code available for Government-wide reuse and make their code inventories discoverable” at Code.gov, with certain exceptions. The new site already has almost 50 code repositories from more than 10 agencies, U.S. chief information officer Tony Scott wrote in a blog post._
