Google Code is Shutting Down Because All Are Using GitHub

Google Code is Shutting Down
Recently Google has announced they are shutting down the programming code hosting project called as Google Code because whole around the world all are loving and using the newly introduced code hosing project GitHub. 

Google code is going away on 25th January 2016, they have provided you the time to get your code out from Google Code. You can get your code before they shutdown the service. It is the one of the best platform to host your project. These days no one is using Google code anymore, so they are shutting down the service which was launched in 2006 to the aim of providing the best project hosting but unfortunately they has to stop. 

Official Words from googleOSPo,

We will be shutting down the service about 10 months from now on January 25th, 2016. Below, we provide links to migration tools designed to help you move your projects off of Google Code. We will also make ourselves available over the next three months to those projects that need help migrating from Google Code to other hosts.
  • March 12, 2015 - New project creation disabled.
  • August 24, 2015 - The site goes read-only. You can still checkout/view project source, issues, and wikis.
  • January 25, 2016 - The project hosting service is closed. You will be able to download a tarball of project source, issues, and wikis. These tarballs will be available throughout the rest of 2016.
