If you use microcontrollers, play with Arduino, or do other things that involve open source software and hardware, you most likely should have downloaded from GitHub. After Sourceforge and Google Code, GitHub is currently where people share their work. All sorts of open-source projects can be found here, ranging from simple single-file Arduino sketches to huge cloud apps made up of hundreds of repositories containing thousands of files. Things like source code and binaries and plain text articles are posted here, but also other things like electronic CAD files and 3D print model files can be found on GitHub. Elektor Labs also publishes on GitHub.
