Pros

I was very impressed on how much softwares you can download for this. They are very useful everywhere.
One of the best things I personally love about it is CI/CD. I will definitely encourage you to use it regardless of how you are working - as a team or an individual.
Their search is fast and easy to find open source projects that are well coded. The Github actions for free is nice to have and all the extras you get for free are amazing.

Pros

The best features of Slack are its innovative interface and easy to use features. Slack makes it simple, and even kind of fun, to communicate with your coworkers quickly.
I like the different slack channels for various departments, tech-support, team, individual messaging, and celebrating my teams successes or helping each other out with account challenges.
Slack has been a winner for me no matter which role I am filling. Teams adopt it quickly it's easy to use, easy to set up, and has abundant opportunities for integrations.

Cons

The only downside I found in git was that it had two levels of dependency support, the first two of which were very strict and the third one was very vague: most people are unaware of it.
Github downtime is always a pain to developers. A bad merge is very difficult to revert.
It can be somewhat overwhelming and intimidating when you start using it. It appears much more difficult than it actually is.

Cons

While they are only visible to me, I am always worried that I accidentally posted something wrong.
I disliked the inability to make a public group "private" after it's creation. Would occasionally lag and my.
I hate hate hate how often I struggle with using the video share and audio when someone calls me on slack. It almost never works for me.

excellent platform for version control and collaboration on software development projects

Reviewed 16 days ago

I highly recommend GitHub for any software development team.

Pros

The user interface is intuitive and easy to navigate, making it simple for both experienced developers and beginners to use. The ability to fork and merge code, as well as track issues and pull requests, makes it a great tool for managing projects with multiple contributors.

Cons

The integration with other tools like Visual Studio Code and Slack

Good tool to use as your code repository

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have used Azure DevOps, compare to that Github makes it easy to maintain and manage your codes. Viewing the history and comparing the code is really easy in Github compare to Azure DevOps.

Pros

Github is easy to manage and maintain the codes in cloud. The best thing I like which others could not able to deliver that I can give comments each line of code in each pull requests. Github provides integration to Slack and other platforms where when a new pull request comes I will be notified via Slack.

Cons

I don't find anything least to like about Github. Sometimes I find bit confusing when I try to view my pull request via a branch in Github.

Gold standard in source code management

Reviewed 5 months ago

Overall, very good experience with the platform itself, and 100% worth the money if you are on a corporate plan. The free tier, with the introduction of private repos, is all you'll need as an individual programmer to manage your code.

Pros

- Github is the most widely used version control software on the planet - Powered by git which is the most ubiquitously used version control system - Excellent set of features and clean UI. Plus integration with slack through third party apps

Cons

- I use the github slack plugin which sometimes misses notifications and lacks features. Native support for this 3rd party app would be awesome - There are no easy way to manage complex merge conflicts on the web UI. Well there is the github desktop application, but that is one more software to manage on your computer.

The version control software that ties my job as a developer together.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

As a software engineer, github is my main tool outside of my text editor and terminal. I like its minimal interface, it's code review features (either approve a pull request, request changes, etc), and its integrations with our continuous integration tool and Slack.

Cons

The 'fix merge conflicts' interactive feature is very dangerous, and newer engineers have mistakenly fixed issues in Github rather than in their terminal, which takes some control away from the developer (i.e. choosing to fix via a rebase or a merge), which is a bit nerve-racking. Pull requests with more than 40 files or so (ideally are not that long, but things happen), load very slowly which makes code reviewing a bit arduous. You cannot search on a forked repository which has confused me several times.

Best Code Management tool

Reviewed 4 years ago

Better Code management, specially with bigger teams. Made releases and branching simple. It has been very useful since we started using GitHub and also on boarding new hires as many are familiar with Git.

Pros

Offers free repositories for small teams or Individuals who are fine with public repository. It uses Git which is the base for many other tools like GitHub. Lot of resources available online to learn from. Integration with third parties like Slack, JIRA, Hipchat

Cons

Gets a little messy when you have a lot of repositories. Commands are really hard to remember. It takes a while to understand the concept if you are migrating from older software's like SVN

The easier source control app

Reviewed a year ago

The projects that we manage on my organization are confidential, so we have payed for the Github Businness plan and we control who is entering to the repositories and what are they doing. Also, we allow the access with specific IP's so that's is a really cool feature.

Pros

First, it has a desktop application, so it's easier to pull, push and track changes. It's free for private repositories and organizations (even if yours it's not an open source one). You have A LOT of integrations, like Slack, Jira, Jenkins, etc. Also, you can create your own integration if you need it.

Cons

I think the only thing is missing on Github is group repositories in folders. You can do something like that (using the teams feature) but at the end the repositories are not grouped.

Steps in the right direction

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Github is always the top recommendation whenever someone suggests a repo hosting service. With it being integrated with almost every other software developers use : Version control software like GitKraken, Unit test using Travis CI, you can even link your Github to Slack, and manage your workspace and assign tasks directly related to your projects.

Cons

I really wanted private repositories to be available for free users, even if I had access to it because I was a student. And it is! Microsoft's Github acquisition might bring a lot of good news if they keep going into this direction.

Easily Track And Report Bugs, Monitor Project Progress

Reviewed 8 months ago

GitHub's powerful set of tools help developers track and fix bugs in their code, manage projects with ease, and automate their workflow. With GitHub, teams can comment on code, discuss issues, and review changes before they're merged into the main codebase. And with GitHub's integration with popular third-party tools like Jira and Slack, developers can get even more out of workflow.

Pros

GitHub is a great tool for programmers because it has a lot of features that are useful for programming. GitHub can be used for bug reporting, bug monitoring, and management. Additionally, GitHub can be used for integration and automation. Additionally, GitHub provides team reports and comments functionality. Finally, GitHub is also great because it is constantly improving its functionality. It offers a complete suite of tools to help your team manage bugs, integrate with your existing workflows, and automate repetitive tasks.

Cons

GitHub is the leading platform for software development and collaboration. GitHub is the place where developers come to share code, work together on projects, and build amazing software.

The well known version control platform

Reviewed 4 years ago

This is the version control tool I use for work, so this is like the 2nd most important thing I pay attention to (the first one is just my computer), this can save projects; so we cannot work without this.

Pros

I will skip telling about the git version control itself, we all know that it is the best for it. But what I like the most about github is the integration with 3rd party tools like slack, google, atom, etc.; this integration is perfect for creating automated build bots and this is super useful (and most sdk's, frameworks and tools that use github features have an easy integration of it).

Cons

If you don't need those 3rd party integrations, it is "hard" to tell that this is the best for git version control; compare to other cheaper (or free) alternatives (like bitbucket).

Pros

Github easily and effortlessly helps to keep track of all changes to a project. The version control works really well and is something I cherish. There is lots of documentation and a large community support. There are lots of third party integration with tools I already use such as Slack. Gitbook is solid and reliable with an incredibly impressive uptime. I also like how easy using the pull request is.

The only thing I really don't like and want to see changes to is the UI. It's not as sleek and modern as some other products out there.

Github - Great platform for collaboration and code sharing

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

- Github makes it easy for many developers to collaborate over code. - The UI is neat, intuitive and easy to navigate. - It has easy integration with some popular softwares we use, suck as Slack and sourcetree. - Yet another feature I like is the ease of use of the pull request system. - Deployment of code from github repository to production boxes is very easy to achieve. - Code searching and tracking through version control is very fast.

Cons

- There's the initial learning curve. Though Github is easy to use, it takes a bit of time and effort to get used to how it works. - Even though the desktop application has improved of late, I still feel it lacks some advanced options.

GitHub

A Basic Utility

Reviewed 3 years ago

I honestly, like GitHub. I used it a while, the Microsoft bought them out and I had an ethical issue so I switched to GitLab, but I came back. GitHub is simply too universal and easy to use, despite the new owners. As long as they don't implement any additional features behind a pay wall, I will probably continue to use it.

Pros

I really like the collaboration and discovery features for programs. It's nice to get input from others or be able to test your skills by helping out on other projects. It's also great that you can comment on every commit and sub comment, etc. It makes it easy and organized to talk about specific issues in a project. It's also great that it integrates with so many other software options (slack, trello, discord, etc.)

Cons

I wouldn't blame this on the software exactly, but I don't love the hoops you sometimes need to jump through just to submit a commit. Although, there's a good chance this is entirely user error on my part.

Slack Review from a True User

Reviewed 4 years ago

As an Enterprise IM tool, Slack is absolutely valuable investment for any company.

Pros

Very powerful IM tools for Enterprise and mobile friendly. Can be integrated with variety of tools, like JIRA, Google Drive, Enterprise Notification system. Support daily status check , which is similar to daily stand-up but way better. The search function is my favorite, which helps dig history of issues and knowledge base build-up.

Cons

Not found yet. But something can be better, like Github integration.

Slack

It is an ease of use product for chatting and get work done with your colleagues.

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have chat with my colleagues. I get notified on my pull requests and others pull requests in Github. I get reminder on my colleagues birthdays and so much more.

Pros

Slack is integrated with most of the software development tools. I use Github and because of the Github integration I get notified about reviews and approvals as slack notification.

Cons

Sometimes I do not receive notifications on my mobile for some channels.

Remote & distributed team management, Jira & Github tracking of tickets & PRs.

Pros

So easy to use, so easy to meme & collaborate. Light & dark mods. With every update, better segmentation & better cross app integration

Cons

Better accessibility as it is based on irc at it's core.

Spot on platform for team communications

Reviewed 4 years ago

Most useful integrations I use are GitHub, Analytics and support email/chat routing/handling.

Pros

Unlimited integrations, including ones built by yourself, that allow you to leverage information collected from multiple sources. This should be a top pick for team communications, whether for a company or a hobby/community.

Cons

Threading, and how threads deal with newly uploaded images, can be a pain.

Slack should be integrated to GitHub to make it more reliable while working on projects.

Slack put the last nail in the coffin for Skype (with 1 exception)

Reviewed 4 years ago

Team communications are quick, fast, easy, syncs to our other tools like github and freshdesk automatically.

Pros

Easy to use, not locked into some plan you end up not needing (based on actual users), plugs into everything.

Cons

Desktop software is slow to connect on calls and often is static-y or gives problems on calls esp when people internationally are calling.
