Google launches site for projects and contributions around Android, TensorFlow & Co.

Under the name Dev Library, Google has launched a site for open source projects and tutorials on all aspects of the Internet giant’s platforms and software. This is not an open platform like GitHub, on which everyone can upload their code and texts after registering, but a team curates the content. The selection process is designed to ensure that the projects and articles are both correct and relevant.

The projects are divided into six categories: Android, Angular, Firebase, Flutter, Google Cloud and Machine Learning. The start page presents two projects and two articles for each area, and the individual rubric pages can be filtered according to sub-categories in order to discover ML applications for natural language processing or tools for Android, for example.

The open source project pages each contain a link to the repository on GitHub, while the posts lead directly to the article on the blog or on publishing sites such as Medium. For developers, the site is primarily intended to improve visibility. In addition to the pages for the projects, there is one for the authors of the contributions and the source code, which are linked to the personal pages on GitHub or Medium. For Google, the site is a showcase for its own software or platforms and the projects that are possible with it.

The sub-pages can be filtered according to predefined categories.

Declared goal of the Dev Library is that developers write more about their work and also explain why they created projects in a certain way. If you want to submit your own GitHub project or blog post for the Dev Library, you can fill out a form. The content then goes through the review process at Google.

For general suggestions about the site there is another form. Alternatively, suggestions can be made via an issue in the GitHub-Repository zur Dev Library Submit. more details can be found on the Google Developer Blog.
