When you are learning how to program in a certain language or with a particular framework, it is very useful to have an actual real-world example of that project being used somewhere in the open source community.

Has anyone stumbled across a particular updated website or online resource that provides OSS source code links (like github, sourceforge, etc) to programming languages / frameworks?

This would be especially useful for software engineering professionals who need to learn a new language/framework and want to skip the "Hello World" and get right to something useful.

Firefox's profile profile shows Screenshot of Firefox's Profile on Open Hub some of the data they provide for open source projects.

Github's annual State of the Octoverse provides some level of details about what you are asking to.
