I can't see myself working without it
Comments: I've used GitHub for more than 8 years now. It is my old reliable tool for source control and almost anyone that uses it will probably have the same opinion.
GitHub is probably the single most important tool in our development team. Everything you can think about source control tools it does it and does it well. We have a lot of integrations hooked to it, so it also helps us with more than source control. Besides of that, it is easy to use and being almost universal at this point it means we usually don't have to train new developers on how to use it.
Nitpicking here, but the mobile version might improve a bit. I know code review is something you usually don't do on a phone, but some emergency happens from time to time and you just need to approve / request something and those little interactions could be easier. Still, that's the only thing and it is incredibly far from being a deal breaker.
Reasons for Switching to GitHub: GitHub is easier to deploy across the organization. Plus, almost everybody already knows how to use it, so it saves a lot of time on adapting to it.
Best Version Control So far
Comments: We use GitHub to manage more than 5 projects which are in production and normally more than 8 smaller projects which provide smaller integrations to our main systems. Overall, GitHub has made collaboration smoother and easier beyond imagination. I have been using it since my Junior Years in University to till date. I love the integrations which has helped us to automate the majority of deployment , tests, and updates. I give it 10/10
It provides flexibility to manage multiple projects with multiple users and different permission and have as many versions of the same project we need. I can't even imagine how we would be managing the project without Github. In addition to basic collaboration and version control, the CICD and Action chains is one of the topmost used feature which has let us build a automated pipeline from Development to production.
I am not the biggest fan of the UI on the website. I feel like its less organized then BitBucket. But overall I still prefer GitHub among all the version control tools.
Reasons for Switching to GitHub: We liked the price and the number of features.
Comments: Very good , use for source control
It stores all revisions , has a good tracking system, used by various companies
Everything is command line and sometimes don’t remember all the commands
The best choice for version control for small and large projects
Comments: It has been great software to be honest I will highly suggest it since it's very accessible to anyone, they offer a lot of plans and pricings.
There are some key features that makes GitHub a great tool for version control. In the first place all the process of having control over branches setting permissions and the vast options for configuration in the repository you have are great. It has one of the best pull request section, it allows for commenting more than one line which is great for making comments. As well GitHub have integrated great tools like the pipelines we can create to have continuos integration.
Some time for me GitHub has been built without an intuitive UI and checking even the smallest and easiest thing like a date you need to hover over another date to tell you the complete hour and time of a commit per say. So this kind of stuff makes GitHub sometimes difficult for new joiners of the software but as you get to use it more.
Reasons for Choosing GitHub: GitHub is more widely used around the software development. It has made giant leaps to catch up to Atlassian integrations like creating tickets inside of github and stuff like that.
Switched From: Bitbucket
Reasons for Switching to GitHub: It provided the overall best experience and pricing.
A must need tool for Code development
Github plays a significant role in my day-to-day code develpment. Being a web developer, I frequently need to find bugs in my code, Through the use of version control system in github, I can easily switch my code to previous stage in which my code was running fine and debug the code. This has helped me a lot to enhance my coding experience ultimately leading to my bright professional career.
Although Github has fully tried to give all the features required to developers, there are few things that I like least about this software. One thing is I can't upload folders directly to github using its website and other is that github only offers to host only one static website under my github username.
Reasons for Switching to GitHub: Github is the most popular tool for code development and management and has good UI too so I chose Github over other alternative products.
