is a hosting website where customers can discover, share, and collaborate to improve their software. GitHub first started with a few employees coding in bars and coffee shops. When planning the office’s design aesthetic, GitHub wanted to keep the same startup feel of working in various places. Therefore, employees can choose what venue they want to work in each day: a library, 19th
century lounge, an indoor park, ‘coder caves’ or dark rooms, several cafes, a museum, a vintage bar, or home. There is also a kitchen, multiple conference and phone rooms each with a different theme, a playground, meditation room, speakeasy, an oval office reception room, and a roof deck. A few shipping containers also provide work space since the site was once a railroad. Employees can even work from adjustable desks or communal tables on either a ‘quiet floor’ or a ‘conversation floor’ with music playing. The first floor, which holds the kitchen, bar, and presentation space, is available to startups or non-profits to utilize for meetings or events. Because GitHub is a coding company, it has several programming screens around the office like a screen that shows employees where people are located in the building by hacking the building’s wifi to see who’s connected.
