GitHub CEO Shares Throwback To First India Visit, Calls It His 'New Home Away From Home'

Thomas Dohmke, CEO of GitHub, said in a post on social media platform X on Thursday that he viewed India as his new home away from home as he was optimistic about India’s big strides in technology.

What Happened: “Sixteen years later, I had to stop by Brigade Road on my way back home,” Dohmke said in the post, “Gandhi once said, ‘the future depends on what you do today.' Today, I leave India more optimistic than ever of how we can accelerate human progress when we rise and embrace new frontiers of technology.”

He shared his sentiments after visiting Brigade Road, quoting Mahatma Gandhi to underline the point about the importance of present actions for future outcomes.

He further added, “I dearly love this country, a new home away from home. I promise, I'll be back soon.”

Dohmke also shared a recent photograph of his first visit to Bengaluru in 2008. On June 5, he tweeted that it was his first time as CEO in the country but not his first time on Indian shores.

“India is at the nexus of monumental economic opportunity, as it is set to become the world's largest developer community at the exact point in time the age of AI is taking off,” he said in the post.

Microsoft-owned GitHub has recently said it has 1.54 crore developers working in India, a rise of 33% year on year.
