GitHub is not only a version control system but it is the pool of free and open-source code that can be used in your personal project. Github is considered to be one of the largest codebases in the world with its ever-increasing demand. GitHub doesn’t highlight all the useful repositories that you might use as a developer for the best and the worst cause. So I have curated a list of the best GitHub repositories that you might need as a developer to build awesome web apps and generate some reason results in less time.
I’ve compiled a list of the most valuable repositories, I’m willing to bet you haven’t come across most of them!
GitHub stars: 164k+
Awesome is, without a doubt, the most popular repo that curates all topics from software development to hardware to business. It has more than 123,000 stars on Github at this moment, and one could spend days (nights) browsing it. It is my one-stop shop if I want to learn something new.
😎 Awesome lists about all kinds of interesting topics
2. Build Your Own X

4. Public Apis
GitHub stars: 132k+
If you are a developer, then definitely you will have to deal with APIs for your application. This repository makes the developer tasks easier by presenting a list of frequently updated collections of public APIs.
There are APIs that provide funny memes and images of cats. However, there are some that are more helpful, such as the Gmail API or the Google Analytics API.
A collective list of free APIs easy to use.
5. Project Based Learning
GitHub stars: 51k+
This is by far one of the most important repositories in this list. A list of programming tutorials in which learners build an application from scratch. These tutorials are divided into different primary programming languages. Some have intermixed technologies and languages.
Learning by doing things is the way to go.

6. Developer roadmap
GitHub stars: 163k+
A very good developer roadmap guide was created by Kamran Ahmed. A lot of students and newbies in programming get confused about what technology they should learn and what path they should follow step by step to become a developer. He has prepared a complete chart including the technology in each category of development(frontend, backend, DevOps..) that will give you a clear understanding of what you should learn next. Bookmark this repository if you like the way he guided you to become a developer.
