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...

Excellent source control but archaic billing

PROS

It is very easy to collaborate and work on code changes, publish releases, and run automation scripts. The UI is fast and they are improving it constantly making it quick and efficient to navigate to the repository and even the file you want.

CONS

My biggest gripe about GitHub is the billing. You have to buy a fixed number of seats and you can only increment it in 10s. So, even if you need just one extra user, you still have to pay for 10. It also takes a long time (2-3 days, more in some cases) to get the licenses added. I can't even process why this is the case. I would much rather have preferred usage billing.

Github review (8 years of usage)

PROS

- free private repo is cool - Github actions is awesome - Github pages saves a lot of money for web apps demo & open source projects. I myself have hosted all of my open sources web apps on Github pages. These are my favorites. Rest I can go on and on.

CONS

- Search feature is lacking. If there was better search functionality (eg. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] - powered by algolia), it would be a lot helpful. Searching one report among thousands is a pan right now. - Dependabot is pain - Sometimes Github pages doesn't update properly - Don't get relevant projects on "Explore repositories" section

Reason for choosing GitHub

GitHub has a lot of cool features for free.

Reasons for switching to GitHub

Github was better, in terms of free features and the UI.

GitHub is one of the tools you just need

Works great, high quality and never loose any work. Check in often in busy collaborative environments, otherwise use the merge tools, no biggie.

PROS

It works. Fast and on Mac OS, Windows and Linux. Integrated nicely into both Visual Studio Code (PC, Mac) and Visual Studio (PC). Code compare. Merge. No problems.

CONS

It starts to eat disk space and 50Gbyte gone the other day. Some more integrated cleaning would be great.

Reason for choosing GitHub

Actually, we're using both and GitHub is kind of the basis for both.
