Pros: I've been working with GitHub and git for more than 1 year. It has a great tutorial for beginners, clean UI and is easy to use. It's fantastic to collaborate, for code reviews and has plenty of other features like Continuous Integration and blocking Pull Requests merges before code review. Very reliable and quick.

Cons: I don't see any, really. Maybe the UI could be improved a little bit. Creating and deleting repos could be a little simpler and it would be cool to fix bigger conflicts directly when merging.

Pros: 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.

Cons: The user interface can be confusing for a newcomer, and the amount of options and features available can be overwhelming. Once you have filled a repository with a lot of code, the whole thing can seem a bit daunting. As it just looks like one large wall of text. Setting up GitHub to work with some Git clients can be a bit of a pain, but it all depends on which client you go with. GitHub's own markdown code differs from the usual markdown code, so there can be some strange bugs you might not be used to.

Pros: There's a reason Github is the most popular spot for online code repositories -- it's well organized, intuitive, and simple but powerful.

Cons: There's not much to complain about here, although you will have to pay to create private repos, something certain other sites (e.g. Bitbucket) allow for free

Overall: It's an essential tool for storing and sharing code.

Pros: We used Git for our most recent project and it was incredibly easy to set up and utilize for multiple users and enabled us to create a depot for our project.

Cons: For the most part, Git had all the features we needed, but there were a few features on other popular versioning software that were a bit more intuitive.

Pros: I simply can't imagine working without github since most of tools, plugins and apps we use are somehow connected to github. It helps us get in touch with developers in case we have issues with some application.

Cons: Maybe it could have a better user interface, but I really have nothing to complain about, since it's a tool I use everyday.

Pros: Git is very fast, fairly simple to use, incredibly reliable, and fully featured. Once you put some code there, you can bet you'll always have that code available to reference or go back to, or compare against any other code you've got. Pull requests are an incredible feature for collaborative development! Additionally, it integrates with just about everything under the sun. I would say GitHub is the heart of most important open sources software on the internet. You can interact directly with the developers to report any kind of bugs or issues with the projects.

Cons: There is very little that I dislike about GitHub. One thing relates to its 3rd party integrations: Often they are at the repository level, so if you have a lot of repositories that need the same integration, you might be doing the same setup process tens or hundreds of times. Better options for integrations that work across all of a team's repositories would be a huge help. I would like it to be easier to download software from GitHub, I understand not everyone user has the level to download software directly from the repository but there has to be an easier way for us beginners.

Pros: Git helps me a lot within my work, it allows me to gain time and performance with my development team, rather than finding open source softwares that i often use.

Cons: Git merge conflicts enerve me a lot specially with phpstorm, when merging it's blocked on "merging dev" step so that i need to force the push .

Pros: As a non-dev user of this software, I love it because it makes logging and tracking bugs and/or UI changes and updates super easy to do - email notifications on updated comment threads are also handy. Labeling is easy - love the way they can be color coded.

Cons: It's definitely built more for devs than non-devs, so as a non technical user I have no complaints about it - I've never had any problems with the program not working or being offline.

Overall: This makes tracking all our website bugs and changes possible - we'd be lost without it!

Pros: From commenting discussions on individual lines of code, to explicitly requesting code reviews from particular teammates, to integrations with various continuous-integration (CI) and deployment systems, Github is a fully-featured tool for vetting and tracking changes to your codebase. From the moment you push code up, Github can help your team usher changes through code reviews and approval processes, with all the details and history you would expect from a system built on Git. And with a powerful API and webhooks, Github has a wealth of extension points for building integrations to customize your workflow.

Cons: I'd like more granular control over which email notifications I get (specifically the ability to be notified of new comments on a pull request without also being notified of every additional commit). And while the Reviews feature which batches comments into an all-at-once "review" is central to my team's workflow, the inability to leave immediate, one-off comments in the middle of a review is sometimes limiting. Still, these are minor inconveniences in an otherwise powerful and flexible tool.

Overall: Github has improved the quality of both my team's code and knowledge of our system and programming in general. Its tools for facilitating code reviews allow my team to share knowledge about our stack and domain while also providing opportunities to vet and improve the code we ship.

Pros: I like the searching system, tracking system that by clicking on the professional languages/tools you can find many developers, see their ratings and when their mails are public, it truly helps to write directly and get in touch.

Cons: Don't think there are any strong disadvantages. The only thing is that half of the users made their mails public, others no.

Pros: I love being able to more easily collaborate with teams. I've also used Subversion and have found Git to be leaps and bounds more reliable. Where Subversion is finicky, Git is complicated but works how it should.

Cons: It's really not intuitive for designers. I am a developer and I use a GUI but I still have trouble remembering some of the steps when things get any more complicated than a quick commit or a pull request.

Pros: I love how easy it is to use the git tools both online, and locally. It really helps to be able to commit code locally, and then push it to a central repo where my team can get at it. I like seeing everything, and GitHub provides that visual step for me.

Cons: I don't like how their instructions to get rid of merge conflicts are so vague. I wish that they were more descriptive and worked better. The online editor seems to have issues occasionally as well.

Overall: I can share my code safely with my team. I can backup infinite versions of our product, and can trust that it will be safe.

Pros: As a developer I can store my repositories on github and I can access my code anywhere as long as I have an internet connection. I can have public or private repositories which is great when I do want to share my code with the world and collaborate with my team or people around the world. Lastly, it is great for resumes and sharing with possible employers when giving real example of your work.

Cons: The free version can be limited for non-public repositories.

Pros: Robust code version support, with forking, merging, easy multi-person support. Public data repositories are free, so small teams can collaborate easily. Also love the io function which allows instant publication of HTML , CSS, and other web-based functionality. I have used github as a portfolio site.

Cons: Windows based support is not intuitive. It requires downloading extra software like GitBash for command line functionality. I actually saw on the website that Windows wasn't supported! The Windows GUI client isn't bad, but lacks some flexibility.

Overall: Ability to save, update, version control projects in a cloud-based environment with multiple users for free. Publish web-based projects directly (huge plus!). Projects include training documents, sample code, completed classroom code, classroom rubrics.

Pros: GitHub is a very versatile tool to use. It's ideal for working on projects of any size and it's a great tool for web work flows. You can use it for publishing your work, as a versioning control system and as a collaborative tool.
With GitHub you can archive your projects and share them with your peers for either inspiration or for them to collaborate on. The beauty of it is that you can have more than one person collaborate remotely on a project, so you¿re all on the same page to speak.
It's ideal for creating a backup of your work instead on saving the code on a desktop or on a corporate server.
It is also beneficial to use if you're learning Git. One way to look at it is seeing Git as a preventative maintenance process, where you get into the flow of doing reverts, commits, pulling, pushing, and so forth, as needed. It can save you a lot of hassle if a problem occurs, or if you need to revert code of any sort. One of the best features is being able to track mistakes, and it's definitely made easier by using GitHub. Bugs can be opened, and thanks to GitHub, you can add commits to these and associate it with the problem.

Cons: If you're new to GitHub, one of the challenges often talked about is getting to grips with the mental model, which eases with practice and time.
t may not be the best tool for capturing the creative process or for recording ideas. A good tool for this particular function would be LayerVault or something similar to it. We'd say Git is very good for tracking code, however it's not the best for tracking design. It can seem a little bit of a grey area when designs are needed to be translated into code or for when you need to export designs to a production setting.
It costs to have a versioning repository on GitHub, however it is worth the investment if you¿re working professionally.

Overall: GitHub is Git repository service, which is web based and allows you to use Git's source-code management functionality, along with its own features.
It is verygood version control and we can track our and our members commits easily. We can create the required baselinse with simple steps.

Github is the perfect version control tool to maintain the source code at one place.

Pros: This is an amazing solution for collaborating as a group on the same project. It allows multiple people to be working on code or a project and to be able to combine our efforts while not stepping on each others' toes.

Cons: Pulling and pushing and fetching branches etc. can be very confusing for a new user. I am not dumb, but it has taken some time to figure out how to best interact with this powerful tool. When there are no conflicts it works amazing.

Overall: I am able to work on the same simulink/matlab code as my team and not interfere with each other.

Pros: Project/code hosting. I use it for all my personal projects and at work, the company uses it as well. For personal projects, it's a great way to maintain history, and also work across different computers. No need to worry about losing the code if computer crashed or stolen.
For work, the pull requests and peer review basically make sure no single line of unreviewed code gets merged, and also release management became very easy with github.

Cons: Personally I love every bit of github, but at work we find that the issue tracker is too simple, and the project management tool also lacks a lot of features we want to use. I understand Github is not meant for that, but still if we could just do everything in one place instead of having contents all over the places.

Overall: Easy management/collaboration of personal and work projects. Gate for malicious code being merged to shared projects.

Comments: GitHub is an incredible service for hosting any kind of code of versionable content. It's extremely affordable, even for an individual who wants to host a huge number of private repositories. It integrates with just about everything that you could want, to the point where you can even use GitHub's integration list as a portal to finding other great services you can use online.

Pros: It's nearly a perfect place to host code. Most things happen almost instantly on the platform, and there's a good chance every developer you know is a member of the site. Careers can be built from having an impressive GitHub profile.

Cons: There are very few cons to GitHub anymore. The platform continuously gets better and doesn't sacrifice anything in the process. If I had to give one complaint, it's that the structure of organizations can be a little bit weird, especially when it's used for things other than team members (such as giving a lot of crowd-funding backers access to a private repository). The activity stream on my dashboard is mostly useless in my experience, though that's likely not the case for everyone.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just try it out! Give the GitHub workflow a try if you can (using Pull Requests and feature branches) and see if you find that it fits in well with your processes. In my experience, there's a good chance it can!

Pros: GitHub provides a repository for programming experts to share their source codes with others worldwide. To keep source codes being improved and developed, it is important to get others to be involved. When codes are being shared, bugs can be fixed and applications are being make perfect. GitHub provides the tools and the environment for making this happen.

Cons: GitHub needs to make its user interface more friendly. So that even new users can learn it in less time.

Pros: It has a great feature set without overdoing it and becoming clunky. It integrates with everything, and it has reasonable pricing for individuals and teams.

The web UI is fast, and the API is great for anyone looking to tie-in to a version control system.

Cons: I miss the old repo-based pricing. I also wish columns on project boards could be set up to sync with issues matching a search query to automate boards a bit more.

Pros: Contains all the tools necessary to store code, update versions and even the ability to create a site for the specific project.
All commands are explained in easy to read and understand site help sections and the forums and user guides are readily available and friendly for all users.
Easy tracking of how much work has been done over time as well as a full timeline giving information of all changes.
Works perfectly with all Git extensions and commands.

Cons: Commands can be difficult to understand for the uninitiated but this may just be due to Git itself rather than the github site.

Overall: The ability to store, update and version control software and projects within the business as well as for personal use.

Pros: It's a powerful tool, the UI is clean, refined and very easy to use. Documentation is accurate and easy to follow. A lot of public interesting repos are hosted on this platform

Cons: The private repositories limitation in a free tier it's a problem. (at least for me) I have to use other alternatives like BitBucket or Microsoft Team Services to save my private repositories... It's the only reason because Github isn't my default option

Overall: I love the UX experience with this application, I use it to clone repositories from other users almost everyday

Pros: Encapsulates everything related to managing a git repository, setting up security, backing up, etc. with a great and user-friendly user interface so that our developers can focus on writing code and solving problems instead of having to learn and deal with the management of a source code repository.

Cons: Pricing is not very flexible. The recent plan changes make it harder for a big team that doesn't need that many repositories to get management approval because of the cost.

Overall: Enabled me and my team to focus on solving problems, writing code and learning about the business processes in our company, rather than having to deal with setting up and managing a source code repository.

Pros: The sync, when you have an organization created you can structure better your code and assign some tasks to specific person by the issues. When you use the issues is possible tag them to give a category. You can use projects structure, and keep tracking about the comments and everything that the contributors code.

Comments: I used to use SourceForge but they've become a huge pain in the butt. Github offers so much more and it's completely ad free to boot. Everything downloads at full bandwidth, no special speeds for special payers. Also it has a tool that rivals all of the paste sites called gist, you should check it out gist.github.com, I use it to paste up 7mb and larger text files with great ease and you don't even pay for even larger sizes!

In this tool, we can easily work with the same code on which other person is working. Because in this tool we can create the local repository and push the local branch in main branch after implementation.
GitHub and similar services bring all of the benefits of a decentralized VCS to a centralized service.
From the contractor's point of view, private Git repos give you an easy workflow that can be used for multiple clients. You could set up Git on a server of your own, but it's probably not worth it to spend your time administering the server and your clients' accounts on it.

Comments: A Tech Geeks wet dream - Cloud based hosting service for the lifecycle of development. For a technical user, especially the non-MSFT based folks who came of age coding in the 80s, this s a blast to use.

It provides a seamless code sharing and publishing service, and also a focused social networking site for programmers. Both statements are true, but neither explains exactly why GitHub is special.

At the heart of GitHub is Git, an open source project started by Linux creator Linus Torvalds. Git, like other version control systems, manages and stores revisions of projects. Although it's mostly used for code, Git can also be used to manage any other type of file, such as Word documents or Final Cut projects. Think of it as a filing system for every draft of a document.

Cons: The big fat, script-kiddie target it wears on its forehead.

Overall: 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.

Recommendations to other buyers: Get a paid account today we need to support good software and this platform is as good as it gets.

Overall: As a software developer myself, this is highly recommended. I use different programming languages and GitHub for collaboration and source control

Recommendations to other buyers: There are many things is alike to this but highly recommend using Github

Comments: GitHub is excellent for open source projects. It is easy to set up a project and best of all, it is free to use. If I were in a larger business, it would probably also be great. However, in a small business where pennies count, the pricing is a bit steep for us. Also, there is a bit of a learning curve that isn't always clear when you start. In some respects, it seems like you are either "in the know" or you are clueless. However, if you search YouTube, you can find some great tutorials to help you get going with topics like forking as well as the best practices for committing and running a project.

Pros: Simple, straightforward, easy to use
Very rarely do I feel it "gets in my way".

Cons: Management and organization is limited
Filtering is almost entirely dependent on how well you "tag" issues.

Overall: Beyond the basics (which are extremely well polished, mind you) Github offers a sparse set of tools to manage and organize "Issues", which is what all development items are grouped under. If your team works well with that model (Is it a bug, a feature, a UI issue, a documentation issue, something else? Throw it all in issues!) then Github will work great for you. If you need finer control over these things, or the ability to filter them more narrowly, you'll need to look either elsewhere or find one of a few third-party add-ons (normally as a browser extension/website combo) to add to the built-in experience.

That being said, Github's offering is a very attractive price even as your team grows, so it's hard to harp on it too much.

Pros: Solid product, and a staple of software design.

Cons: Can't think of one

Overall: I've been using GitHub to coordinate efforts and share code both as a student and as a professional developer. It's the tool for the job, and it has as many features as you would want or need to use.

Recommendations to other buyers: There are many graphical interfaces to choose if the command line isn't your cup of tea.

Comments: I love the fact that GitHub allows the open projects to be free. Because of it, most of the OpenSource projects are hosted here. Due to it, everyone is so used to the GitHub, that in fact, other services must mimic the GitHub. And that's great because the important information is clearly visible. The only thing I consider missing, but recent changes greatly improve it, is the code review cycle. The new system still doesn't allow for some actions which are great to use in eg. Gerrit. Sure - GitHub primary function is not this, but it's almost ready to do it perfectly as well!

Pros: You can take code from others with a click. Then hack it and make it better. Then send it back, chat about why and how it should be done, or just use your own version of it.

Cons: The GitHub search features need a lot of improvement. It is also hard to track original commits from forks when they are reworked during pull requests. This makes tracking history of forced and pulled changes rather hard.

Overall: love being able to keep track of every change made to our project by all contributors. I love being able to push directly to GitHub from a terminal. I love how GitHub integrates mentions, git references, issues references, etc in comments. I love being able to track deploy milestones within the issue tracker. I love being able to assign pull requests to colleagues for review.

Comments: If you truly just need a powerful git repository hosting site, GitHub is your go to. Whether you are just a simple student, a free-time developer, or a developer at a company, this is hands down one of the BEST repository hosting sites. You have to know git, which can be a bit arcane. It's not that hard, and there are some great graphical tools you can use for the most part, but it really helps if you have access to at least one person that really knows git.
Github can quickly push updates, then if there are issues other members can go in and see who made updates to the repository and where the brake happened. In the same repository we also have visuals/graphs etc that show us a lot of information. It shows us the differences between code and we can quickly and easily compare code

The issues feature is very handy and instead of making everything off site, it can be done on the same place, no need to have a separate site with bug reports and internal team bugs, everything is built in

Comments: I hopped on Github way back when I went to General Assembly for web development. At that point, I was using it for hours everyday. It's been a while since I've been actively using Github but I remember how great of a tool it was for me. It has since worked well in helping my current team to build out what we need for our iOS app. So I'm happy the platform exists to be a huge resource to us!

Pros: Great features and functionality - useful, never down, easily become part of our workflow.

Cons: The interface is confusing to get to grips with.

Overall: We use as version control for the development team - useful and functional and offers features that aren't easily/as competitively available elsewhere. Other teams struggle with the usability of the platform; great developer-focused platform.

Comments: I love(d) working with GIT. GitHub is a Git repository hosting service, but it adds many of its own features. While Git is a command line tool, GitHub provides a Web-based graphical interface. It also provides access control and several collaboration features, such as a wikis and basic task management tools for every project.

Overall: We've used Github for years as a team and have found it to be the most dependable product. It is central to our entire development workflow and has never let us down. Over the last 5 years, I can only recall one brief outage which was quickly rectified.

Tons of features for small teams or solo developers and they are adding new functionality all the time. Recently we've really appreciated the peer-review workflows now baked into the pull request process.

Pros: An invaluable resource for any developer, couldn't work without it.

Cons: no private repos for the free version, unlike BitBucket

Overall: Our team would be lost without Github, from managing current projects, and creating separate code bases and managing deployments to searching current code from other developers. A valuable resource for any developer. The Github community has evolved on its own, with other coders always willing to help

Pros: Free public repositories for trial or non-commercial use as well as a much beefier enterprise offering for corporate use provides a range of entry points, tons and tons of users and corresponding information on the internet, pull request and fork features are great for allowing community-based collaboration and contribution

Cons: Git itself has somewhat of a learning curve, especially coming from more traditional source code control systems and methodologies but that's not necessarily a knock on GitHub - it can just take some time to figure out the best way to do things.

Overall: I've been using Github for my personal source code repositories for a number of years. Github has become somewhat of an industry standard implementation of the git source control system and is especially prevalent in the open source developer community. I've used Github as a place to host tutorial type repositories for my personal blog which details example technical solutions for Salesforce development.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you have code to version, you should really consider GitHub - git is such a powerful and lightweight source code control system, and GitHub public repositories are free - what do you have to lose? Take the time to learn about the internals of git and how it works and you will save yourself a bunch of headaches.

Comments: If you need repos, this is the first place you go to. Best git repo service out there. Most modern repo system, especially compare to SVN, and there are many tools that work with git and github.
