Technology pioneer IBM is contributing to the open source community by adding the free access to more projects and platforms. Last week, IBM made this announcement.

Some of the open sourced projects are:
Activity Streams, Agentless System Crawler, Node Application Metrics, i18n4go, Clampify, IBM Design Language Web Animation Components, Object Storage for Bluemix, Mule, Gaian Database, IBM Design Language Mobile Animation Components, Node-RED, IBM Bluemix Mobile Services SDKs, libsecurity, Cognitive Catalyst for Watson etc.
IBM already contributes to 150 open-source projects such as OpenStack and Linux. The source code of the projects is stored on GitHub.
