We have been using it for code hosting for both private and public projects for several years, issue tracking etc not so much (mainly because the tracker is quite basic). As GitHub is using git underlying it can be accessed via any git compatible client out in the wild - so there are tons of ways to choose from suiting every developers needs. Github provides many hooks for third party tools, so pushes can trigger all sorts of things like CI builds or posts in your company Slack. Automation and integration is dead simple and super flexible. The company itself is really developer friendly, and you can sense that they are using GitHub themselves. Hosting of open source projects is free and their support and documentation are very helpful. Availability is high - one of the most important reasons when choosing a code hosting service.

The best part of this software, in my opinion, has to be the repository insights that comes with the pro version and above. These insights have proven to be extremely valuable when managing larger-scale projects with multiple developers working on the projects. Not only is our project management team able to get live updates on the progress of the project with each commit, but our team is also able to hold each other accountable by seeing their progress via the progress tracking feature and individual commits. Another notable mention for Github is their desktop GUI. This is such an incredibly easy tool to use and it makes the entire GIT experience much easier to understand and maneuver.

The only other solution for an enterprise level git service is BitBucket from Atlassian. I have enjoyed both. While I think BitBucket has better integration with JIRA, I think the other services offered in GitHub work just as well. They *do* have JIRA integrations which work just fine. Also, if you use GitHub Issues instead of JIRA it works great and they have amazing support for that as well. I would highly recommend GitHub to anyone looking for a git service.

Because GitHub is a reputable service used by millions of developers, it serves as a great tool to show off your skills to potential employers. I personally got the privilege of getting access to more work opportunities as my experience using the service was taken into account when working remotely with a team. Being uselessly paranoid about potentially losing my files and projects, I feel reassured knowing that my code is being hosted on GitHub while being seamlessly synchronized on a third-party storage service, allowing for a painless retrieval of anything of importance in the worst case scenario. It also serves as a useful backup in case the code base gets messed up locally: it suffices to delete everything and start from scratch by pulling all the data from GitHub. The reverse is also true: if for some reasons a project has diverged too much from local changes being made, it is very simple to rewrite the history of a project by reusing only local references and discarding anything on the other side. Since Git isn't particularly easy to approach for beginners, having all those safeguards and the ability to undo most actions brings peace of mind to the user.

If you are doing anything in academia, even if you are a student, or anything related to software engineering you want to use Git. Note that there is a difference between Git and GitHub - Github is where your data is stored. GitHub is also the biggest (to my knowledge) hosting service for Git so most likely it will be your first contact if you work with Git. Fortunately, it's also very good. The interface is easy to use (of GitHub, NOT Git) and as far as I can tell it has no downtimes. I have never needed the support so I can not rate that, but that is just a further indicator for the quality of GitHub, everything is either obvious from the get-go or well documented. Even if you are just writing homework assignments, it's a good idea to back up your work using Git. If you are in the field of software engineering or doing "recreational programming" you might already be familiar with Git. In either case, using GitHub to host your Git projects is an excellent choice.

GitHub offers to host projects that rely on the Git version control system. While mainly aimed at developers, it works very well for any text-based work. GitHub offers free hosting for all open source repositories (i.e. your code will be visible to the public). The website is extremely easy to use, and has a beautiful, clean interface. When working in teams, the concept of pull request comes in very handy: one developer can "branch off" the main version of the project to work on a new feature. Once the feature is ready, the developper proposes a "pull request", to re-integrate the new feature into the main branch. Contributors to the project can review the code, giving precise feedback on the new feature. I have used this workflow with great success in the context of small teams. Finally, GitHub scores major points in the academic sector by providing Student and Institution accounts with unlimited private repositories, for free ("Student Pack").

Easily share your code with team members, for QA'ing and bug fixing purposes. Integration with various Git clients allows users to have full control over what goes in and out of GitHub. Various built-in quality control features, making sure all work is up to an adequate standard. Pull requests force team members to double check any work submitted, and the 'Markdown' system that runs alongside that allows for total customisation of our documentation. The user management system is also very useful, as it lets the team know who made what changes and when. The in-built version control also ensures our code is backed-up and can be reverted if need be.

If you see a interesting project you can link into your project as a library or if you want to contribute or create a personalization you can fork and create a "copy" of the original repository to start editing and change things you need, all of this is really easy to do. You can see all the forks of a project and see what's the people doing and merge some functionality made for other people if you want. So it's very collaborative.

What can I say about Github? Aside from revolutionizing business, application development, deployment and project management, this platform has given rise to such industry-wide standards as the "pull-request" and "repository forking". It is a veritable wonderland of networking & communication tools and helps to promote open-source projects by providing free hosting to anybody who supports code that is free (as in, beer). I actually teach a class on using Git and Github and all my students are routinely surprised to learn how revolutionary this tool really is. I particularly love comparing the Github feature-set and straight-up rip-off artist that is Atlassian's Bitbucket. While BB too has morphed into a solid platform, it is clear that any success it enjoys is due to riding the Octocat's furry coat-tails into the binary sunset. Couple all of this with never-ending new features being deployed on an almost monthly basis, Github truly is the greatest product ever. Now if we could only solve the countless DDOS attacks it suffers from, I could finally die a happy nerd. In the meantime, I'll be plus-one'ing random threads and drop sweet poop emojis everywhere from Rails to jQuery.

GitHub offers you a wide range of opportunities that you should benefit from. GitHub is a great service that ensures you do not lose your effort whether or not your computer system has been stolen or lost, you can upload your code to GitHub to keep it, or even Back to previous versions of the project, you can make the project private or visible to all, and developers around the world can participate in its development and improvement. It has a huge community, helps you find a job and has many great features to help you manage your project And helps you to work on your project and you can modify the files even if one of the work team works at the same time and adjust it, the amendments are lifted without objection or without problems as in the past Git can also download a copy of the project repository and place it in the machine with the constant update feature of the project One of the advantages of this unexpected site is that if you put one of your code in GitHub, employers or companies will be able to see your business in real life and will know more about your knowledge and software skills, so this will help you get more job and faster .

I use GitHub to version control almost everything that doesn't come with build in version control,ex: EGit for Eclipse. Almost all developers in my organization have a GitHub account and we're able to share builds, releases, and codes from all over. I feel that almost all devs and programmers need to, and have used GitHub in their career. It's probably the standard of all version control and code deposition tools out there.

1. The integration with git is easy hence one can communicate directly with github through git via commands in git terminal. 2. The user interface of the website is easy to understand with many social features such as following fellow developers and options to comment on repositories. 3. It is free of cost until and unless you want to keep a project private. So it is great for students like me. 4. It even allows hosting one website with their domain name , so we students can create a portfolio website using it ! or it can be put to other use too! 5. Since it is cloud based , all the projects along with their different version remain intact , so it definitely is a great way to keep a software development process safe with easy rollback and data safety. 6. Different versions of software can be easily compared using commit history. 7. It has a great search engine which allows efficient and accurate queries to find projects , datasets etc easily. 8. It is a great way to collaborate with others as they can request their changes they made to their fork and the owner of repository can view the changes and finally commit them. 9. Secure with facilities like two factor authentication

By merging our code into Github, not only were we able to keep a stable version, but in case we make any changes and it breaks our code, we can simply grab our last build from Git, and go from there. If also our system malfunctions but our code is pushed, we can simply grab it from any other machine and continue working from there. Then we can push those changes back into Git.

One thing most people don't realize is that GitHub is more a community than a software repository. You can join and be a member without downloading any software. You can participate in projects and help others without being a contributor, however, if you take that route it's a very limited role and not very many people do that, but it's an aspect of Github that often gets overlooked. I've found myself just browsing all the projects and trying out new software and after a while, get involved and contribute myself to various efforts.

The possibility of collaborating with any free software project in the world (they are all hosted here) is very rewarding.You can talk to the Software creators, report mistakes and learn different solutions. It is very cool because it manages to unite the entire community of developers around the world in an easy, useful and totally altruistic way. There are even huge companies, like Facebook for example, that have opened their code because they are interested in receiving feedback from Github community in order to improve it. I also really like the graphical interface to control the pull requests system because it is very detailed. Github is the tool that best fits with Git. The ability to plan tasks and synchronize it with external tools such as Trello is great. Github also allows you to check, in a very visual way, the exact changes that have been made in each line of code throughout the life of the project. This makes your life much easier.

Our lab team changes every few months, with the rotation in and out of undergraduates who support our research. GitHub version control is a great way to keep track of the work that various team members have done, as well as to keep projects separate so one person doesn't accidentally make sweeping changes that mess up the code at large. Before our team started using GitHub, we were manually making versioned copies of code, and we had no way of getting updates other than to start using the new programs people had written, which often required manually changing the names of referenced functions and programs within our personal code. That was a huge pain. However, with GitHub, we've been able to more quickly implement changes, provide better documentation, and organize our team's workflow much better.
