Originally launched in 2006, and has lasted for almost a decade, Google Code has been operating in the shadow of GitHub. Today the search giant officially announced that all new project creation has been disabled.
On January 25, 2016 the Google Code service will be totally shut down.
However you will be able to download tarballs of projects which will be available through the end of 2016.
As a courtesy to users of Google Code and to help get current projects off the Google Code site, Google has an Export to Github tool to make the migration easy.
