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...

The Leading Hosting Software Platform

I'm not too much using GitHub but his year and the previous was the first time I used as a process not just being discovering before ! After that I recognize that GitHub is the leading platform in Software management code, why ? Because Has a massive active users with huge code base and diverse software sharing process.

Pros

It's really easy and powerful to maintain and get productive every day process

Cons

Lean process and rich tools to manage the project

Reasons for choosing GitHub

Because has a large base and so powerful from all sides, for me is not the platform, I'm concerning about Git software tool to manage the code and being share online. Really work fast and every moment I enjoy my experience with it, and for sure how it is immersive because had a large communities code share and it's really useful.

Reasons for switching to GitHub

Is not a switch but is just being around and still GitHub my main tool to manage my code !

One of the best git services out there

We use it to share a repository with a Unity project (games for mobile and PC mostly), and it's really been helpful for us since our struggles to collaborate due to Unity nuances in particular, helped us to learn how to build better code that's maintainable on a team, this things are often overlooked on one-man projects. By Github being free and world renown it's quite easy that colleagues already have an account, thus making it easy for us to give them access for a code review, game-jams or collaborations in general.

Pros

Github is world renown, it's been making my life easier for years. We mainly use with colleagues or friends to work on game development projects, and it's easy to use even for non-coders since they include a Windows and MacOS GUI out of the box, and it's compatible with any git manager out there. They recently added the ability to have free private repositories, which are great.

Cons

The fork and pull request process designed to propose changes on third party repositories seems a bit troublesome to me in particular, but I understand why they did it, and I just got used to it.

Reasons for switching to GitHub

I mainly started coding on Gitlab since they've offered private repositories for free and the paid plans were cheaper, but Github updated their prices and features last year (2020), thus it made me prefer to have everything on one place. Also, Github is more advanced and robust in regards of features and security in general, I feel safer there.

Excellent Developer Tool - GitHub

- The overall experience with GitHub is excellent and very satisfactory. The tool has many good features provided OOB for many customers to get go from the initial setup itself.

Pros

- The most important feature that we use at a very critical phase is the version control, creating pull requests for the developers to review the code base continuously, for continuous integration and continuous deployments for merging code and deploying code to production - The tool is very easy to use and navigate without any prior experience - The tool has very good support team to resolve any issues in the process - The tool is very widely used by enterprise companies in the market to manage the code base

Cons

- The pricing could be more reasonable as compared to the other tools in the market - The UI can be more intuitive for the users to work with - The tool can include more features in the tool that could be used by many customers instead of building custom API's and having issues in the workflows.

Reasons for choosing GitHub

- The pricing was less when compared to the other tool we choose. It did not had other integrations we are looking for.
