About GitHub

GitHub is a project management and code sharing platform that allows users to share their codes with others and create/iterate using collective intelligence. The software can be used for different kinds of coding assignments including personal, open-source and business codes. It is available both on-premise and via cloud-based deployment. Users can save all versions of their code and collaborate with other users by inviting them or tagging them with @mentions. Developers can join communities wherein they can follow open-source projects, leverage already-created codes for experiments, make suggestions and contribute to a project. All the contributions in open-source projects are recorded in developers’ profiles. Businesses of all sizes use GitHub as an integrat...

Great at code for sources but too complicated for first timers

GitHub is not easy to learn. For someone who does a side hussle for a company and not planning to hire someone professionally, this is too much work. There are alternate solutions out there, I am going to try next.

Pros

The UI is easy once you get used to it. The repository is vast and is easy to find if you know some commands. It also helps to keep repository private to share internally with peers. Workflow visualization and deployments are a great feature too. Most I like was the development of apps and integration with Client's movile & windows and the vast database of security data.

Cons

Cant convert tasks and link to JIRA, which is used in out organization. Free version has too small space limit of 100MB in a single file. Command based interface is too tough for a new user. I have faced a databreach notification.

The code versionning standard

I have used GitHub personally and never had any problems. I also used it professionally and every time something came up, I knew with high confidence that my coworker or myself messed up and that it was not the software's fault. All of my code versioning with GitHub was used on teams with less than ten members.

Pros

The entire code versioning tool is so easy to use and does every branch operation with visual clarity. It implements git quite easily, especially with a RSA key.

Cons

There is no real issue with GitHub. It does exactly what it is supposed to be doing. I could say that I had a few difficulties learning the concept of versioning when first using it.

Reasons for choosing GitHub

GitHub was simply a more elegant and free solution for my needs. BitBucket was a more appropriate ressource for a bigger business, as it included in Atlassian. However, it is marginaly more expensive. GitLab also has the same cost issues. As for Jenkins, I simply felt that it was slower to reach roi.
