"Awesome versioning system and code review software"

What do you like best?

It coordinates so well with the direction line that it's the fundamental way I associate with GitHub every day. Every single fundamental activity you may need to perform are additionally accessible in the graphical interface on GitHub, making for an advantageous encounter when moving as every single important instrument can be gotten to in any case. It offers security highlights, for example, the capacity to connect SSH and GPG keys, enabling clients to confirm their submits and secure their personality. The two-factor verification framework is likewise stunningly very much considered, having different recuperation alternatives including security keys, SMS number, recuperation tokens, recuperation codes, and even fallback SMS number. On the off chance that you frequently compose a similar substance in the type of remarks, there is even an element to have "spared answers", accelerating the cooperation procedure for repeating matters. GitHub is additionally very available, offering boundless private storehouses for individual use. Indeed, even open source associations can profit enormously without spending a dime as it incorporates, of course, all that one can require. GitHub is likewise ideal for understudies, giving you access to ace highlights and limits through their "Understudy Developer Pack". GitHub Pages is another incredible part of the stage, enabling you to have a site with no problem, with actually brisk form time while additionally positioning extremely high on web search tools.

"Best Platefarm to share code for developers"

What do you like best?

GitHub is a magnificent tool in the field of advancement and programming, since it permits to share code among the work group, which encourages collaboration, can make reinforcement duplicates each time you code endures a change, with which it is conceivable to come back to past renditions if there should be an occurrence of blunders with the new changes.

GitHub encourages the preparing and observing of changes in amount as well as in records and data gadgets. Have the capacity to see these adjustments continuously and see who has changed something, which is valuable.

What do you dislike?

for me the dislike is it gives heaps of mistakes when the designers are chipping away at certain undertakings. Thus, it is difficult to ace every single blunder when consolidating the code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would exceptionally prescribe others to change to GitHub in light of the fact that Github makes for simpler commitments to your top open source ventures

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a nodejs engineer I require to oversee different versions of codes for examination and furthermore for appearing at the customer for their preference.So I use github to have different versions of same code

"Project management and version control made easy with GitHub"

What do you like best?

Using GitHub we can maintain the source code of the entire project and control its version on each release. GitHub is the best tool to create repo and to host our source code. The major feature is that the repo can be made private without making any more payment. Almost of all open source projects can be found on GitHub and is a very good place to lean and contribute to free and open source software. GitHub is best when we are working on time critical projects as this platform doesn't went down and is easy to push and make commit requests.

What do you dislike?

The only issue I face is with the GitHub desktop tool, it is very slow and even crashes so that we need to use the web version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very good tool to manage opensource and private repos, great initiative. Well recommended to any type of developers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are working on many software projects and we use GitHub to store them on a single server. GitHub makes it easy to manage them in a single place.

You can move back to the past code likewise as it keeps tracks of the considerable number of changes. It additionally gives you to team up in different people groups project. There are a plenty of valuable GitHub project which will upgrade the specialized knowledge.its simple ease of use, its vast dynamic network, and it's free

What do you dislike?

The main impediment that github has is that so as to have a private undertaking you should utilize its paid form, which does not have a high cost, for everything else it is an astounding apparatus.

"Gran manera de gestionar múltiples repositorios"

What do you like best?

Git ha sido una revolución en los sistemas de control de versiones, pero para algunas personas puede ser difícil usar GitHub ha sabido implementar una interfaz que simplifica el uso del protocolo de formulario en línea. He usado Git y GitHub durante más de 3 años y estoy muy satisfecho y agradecido con estos dos servicios porque han simplificado mucho mi trabajo.

Lo mejor de GitHub:

+Implementa el protocolo 100% Git.

+Con GitHub personal puedes tener varios repositorios en tu cuenta.

+Ahora puedes tener repositorios privados gratis.

+Puedes gestionar el historial de cambios de tus repositorios.

+Puede integrarse a cualquier IDE o editor de texto y administrar sus repositorios de forma remota.

What do you dislike?

Lo único negativo que tuvo GitHub fue que los repositorios privados fueron pagados, pero esto es algo que ha cambiado recientemente y ya no es el caso. No encuentro nada más negativo en el servicio, ofrece repositorios para el protocolo git y cumple perfectamente.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo usar GitHub si está buscando un lugar para hospedar y administrar los repositorios de sus proyectos, sin importar si son personales o de negocios. El servicio está en línea 24/7 sin parar, por lo que nunca perderá su trabajo o tiempo. Además, el servicio no tiene costo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"A great platform for contributing and maintaining open source project"

What do you like best?

GitHub is the best platform to manage open source projects and to invite developers so that the community can benefit. It is also a place to host our private repos and to create a place to add team. The main advantage is that the GitHub can be used to store our entire code with all the commits. Both private and public repos can be maintained in GitHub so that we can manage the both open and private projects at the same time.

What do you dislike?

The main issue is with adding team members, it takes a lot of steps to on board them to the GitHub account. Please reduce the steps so that it makes us easy and can add members so fast. Also it could be nice if there is a way to signup using social sites like Facebook.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please promote more open source projects and help them achieve their goals.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are hosting the public and private projects at the same time on GitHub thereby saving a lot of time in switching them and thereby improving developer efficiency.

"An excellent teamwork solution to develop programming projects"

What do you like best?

A wide range of companies uses Github to develop their programming projects. It's straightforward to start working with it, and the company offers free licenses. The platform supports many devices and technologies, and also many coding environments are compatible with Git technology. Changes made by members are shared in a team simultaneously so that you can organize your work depending on the latest changes. Managing a project is seamless, as the project manager has a central view of work made. Personally, the discuss mode is surpassing, there are some features, which enables you to leave detailed comments on code syntax, ask questions or leave a review at someone request.

What do you dislike?

It's easy to start working with Github, but getting used to its model takes some time and requires much practice. Besides, you continually need to have access to the Internet, and the connection has to be stable and fast to make Github work properly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are working on open source or team projects, then you should try GitHub because it offers everything you need. Even huge developers such as Facebook or Twitter apply the solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use the platform, as Github is an excellent tool for managing team projects and developing them. It is a beneficial and useful solution for internal coding. Version control system, offsite backups and local backups for every machine make teamwork seamless.

"A complete open source experience on web"

What do you like best?

There are two mode of github.Public and Private.You can put your repository into github and make it private for the team.Github has been improved a lot recently.

Pull requests:

Code review comments can be made showing the change required.Difference with Pull request is helpful.

Issues: Informative tags can be added according to the issue,navigation is quite easy.Review process is less painful.

Tags/branch selection: Selecting branches from dropdown is easy to understand.Showing recent commits are helpful.

Gist: Code snippets can created easily to be shared

Commit graph: Github shows the density of commits done by user per month and creates a graph.It creates a lot of excitement among users.

Exploring interesting open source project expands a whole new level.

Major projects like linux, node, visual studio code are all hosted on github.

Followers system creates an engagement among open source enthusiasts.

What do you dislike?

Changing branches/tags while creating PR reloads the window,which is annoying.

Private repositories are paid comparing it with bitbucket which gives private and public repository option for free.

Recently github was acquired by Microsoft.A company famous for holding proprietary softwares now holds github creates a big threat to open source community called GitHub.For that reason many projects are shifting to alternative such as Gitlab because of trust issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Contribute more to awesome projects.It's a gold mine for software developers looking for inexpensive and stable softwares and frameworks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Version control system is easy with git and github.The main power comes in when the project is open source and there are people who improve code quality,feature enhacement,fixes by creating a Pull request.

"Best repository manager"

What do you like best?

We work with Git together with Github for our project repositories. One great thing about Github is that we can keep our progress in the cloud and access this content 24/7 for everyone who works with us. We can also separate our progress by using branches as "main" and "develop" one used for the final product and the other for testing purposes.

Thanks to this tool, we can use unlimited repositories at no cost to us, so we can have as many repositories as necessary. Overall Github is very easy to use, since it is not necessary to configure everything, since most are configured by default to work.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the Github interface may seem so simple and simple that it gives the impression that there is not much possible configuration for the repository, although it is not like that because through the configuration menus we can change many things in the repository, except the interface graphic or colors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Github is the most popular repository management platform that exists, so any problem you find is very easy to solve by searching the internet, of course it also has a great company that gives security to your repositories, in this way we can have the certainty that our data will always be available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Github we do not need to buy a dedicated server to store a copy of our local repository, this helps us a lot because it saves costs and we also do not waste time managing the server since with Github we should hardly intervene in its operation.

"Github free private repositories!"

What do you like best?

Without doubt one of the best features of Github is the recent update by which it is possible to create private repositories for free, this option is especially useful for users who do not wish to share their projects temporarily or permanently.

Repositories are available 24/7 365 days a year, this is not just a number as a Github user. I can say that it is a serious company and that you do not have to worry about the availability of your projects. and even less if you are using git locally and only Github as a remote repository. On security as I have said now it is possible to create private repositories, also to modify or upload new content it is necessary to have permissions that can only be granted by the creator of the repository.

What do you dislike?

I have not yet found anything that I dislike about Github, as a repository for the content of my projects I have found that it has always lived up to my demands, however if I had to say something that could be improved I would say that it only has a theme light on your website, it would be fantastic if you could choose between light or dark theme.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend using Github even if you are a user of another repository in the cloud because personally I think that being the most used you have more chance that your projects are visible to more people, also that a company like Microsoft is a Github owner increases my confidence in them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems that are solved with Github are two, on the one hand that of the backup copies since when working with the git protocol we can keep copies in which to work in our local repository and store the final project in the repository. On the other hand, working using Github allows us to improve the organization and the speed of the project since it is possible to work in teams simultaneously in different files.

"The best repository manager"

What do you like best?

The best thing about GitHub is that it is a site that hosts your projects of any kind and regardless of the programming language and can access the content at any time because GitHub is online 99% of the time, in addition to being backed by a major company such as Microsoft. You have the certainty and the tranquility that the site will not close from one day to the next and you will lose all your work.

What do you dislike?

- The problem with GitHub is that the Git protocol is very extensive and if the protocol is not well understood, using the application becomes a bit complicated, especially for new people, although it is true that this is not their fault and they also provide documentation and tutorials Interactive to help understand.

- It is somewhat difficult to understand the concept of Gist, although it has worked well with my IDE I do not finish seeing the utility.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have used GitHub for a long time and I recommend it to all the programmers but especially to beginner programmers because it is a tool that really improves the productivity and the organization of your projects, besides if you are not a company the use of GitHub has no cost whatsoever.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using GitHub we forget to create manually remote repositories and have to manage servers that could fail and result in data loss, with GitHub we are sure that our data is in the cloud and will not disappear. Also using the platform increases productivity if you work as a team.

I have used Git and GitHub for more than 3 years and I am very satisfied and grateful to these two services because they have simplified my work a lot.

- You can integrate to any IDE or text editor and manage your repositories remotely.

What do you dislike?

The only negative thing that GitHub had was that the private repositories were paid, but this is something that has changed recently and is no longer the case. I do not find anything more negative in the service, it offers repositories for the git protocol and it fulfills perfectly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend using GitHub if you are looking for a place to host and manage the repositories of your projects, no matter if they are personal or business. The service is online 24/7 without stopping so you will never lose your job or time. In addition, the service has no cost.

"Best service to create your repository!"

What do you like best?

In the company we work with Git and use Github for our repositories. The best thing about github is that we can keep our progress in the cloud and accessible to the entire team. In addition we can create different branches of work to join them once supervised.

The best thing about Github is:

- Unlimited repositories for free

- Total support for the Git protocol

- Online 24 hours a day

- Very easy to use

- The design of the web is simple and pleasing to the eye

- It supports every programing language

- It has templates for GNU, MIT licenses ...

- GitHub save all your history changes made to your code

What do you dislike?

The only negative thing that GitHub can have is that some options like private repositories are not free but it worth every penny i must say

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend GitHub not only because it is the best known but also because if you need a repository that is available all the time is the best solution.

Also the company is owned by Microsoft so you can rest assured that it will not close and your code will be lost

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We pay Github monthly to have our private repositories among other things and it's worth every penny!

We needed an online solution for our repositories that would allow to have private repositories and GitHub was the solution, besides the price is very reasonable

"The best shared resource platform for a Programmer"

What do you like best?

I love this platform, the truth is that I think it is unique, it is excellent to get answers to problems that we do not have or can not solve, it is the best shared code platform that exists in my opinion, besides that it has tools such as viewers and saves backup copies of every change we make in our codes which is excellent because at the time of making an error is very easy to return on our same steps, fascinates me, also is excellent to work as a team and the collaboration that exists is of great level, also has an excellent community that is always willing to help. It should be noted that its use is free and that there is a paid version whose only advantage is being able to have private projects.

What do you dislike?

If I had to complain about something serious, the only way to have private projects is to pay, but the truth is that subscription is very economical and it is worth acquiring if we are a user whose code we are doing can not be shown.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it to anyone who is in the area of programming or web design because you really will not regret it, it will be useful to achieve almost any goal they have and for sure they will always get support from the community.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this platform I have solved a myriad of problems and that without counting the number of problems that have summarized me since in many cases I get fractions of code that are necessary for the system that I have been developing and with these shared codes and free complement.

"A usable source code repository and Open Source community site."

What do you like best?

The best thing about GitHub is certainly it's ease of use. The Web site is concise and to the point, all it's features are easy to use and are well organized as to be easy to find. You can also interact with it using any GUI for git or the good ol' command line tools should you prefer. It doesn't force a single way to use it's services on you.

It's versioned Paste Bin-like tool Gist is also pretty great for storing and sharing single or multi-file code snippets without cluttering your repositories.

GitHub also has some great collaboration tools for Open Source development, including a per-repository wiki and bug tracker, and the possibility to integrate repositories with continuous integration, source coverage analysis and other project management tools.

What do you dislike?

For each repository you create GitHub calculates a summary of it by programming language used. It usually works well, but it can get confused by certain file extensions, reporting the wrong languages (It usually confuses C++ with Objective-C).

A pet peeve of mine is also how GitHub's Gist doens't allow you to set a main file for multi-file pastes, instead using the file that comes first alphabetically (it's very anoying when your Gist repo is titled "Makefile" automatically because it's other files have names that sort after the M).

Recommendations to others considering the product

As the name suggests, GitHub is completely centered around Git, and as such it doesn't support SVN, Mercurial or any other SCM tool for project management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use GitHub to keep backups of all the projects I develop, from hobby projects to all work I produce in my work as a professor, like the course-work for my graduate studies to some projects being developed in the laboratory I work for.

"GitHub is an amazing version control system.... The best for working in team..."

What do you like best?

Git is the best version control system I have ever used. It helps a lot in project management. When working in teams the main issue faced is someone will overwrite a change done by you. But git gives the best solution to it. When you push your changes, git will tell which all files have changes and you just want to pull the changes. Also most of the conflicts are solved by merge and if any exists, git points out it and we can easily correct and push the changes. Also git saves the history , so any time we can checkout to a previous stable stage. Another best part is git branching. We can start a new branch and work in this branch, which makes your live server stable. when your new branch is stable, you can merge it with live and all changes will be reflected in live.And you can know who made changes by using git.

What do you dislike?

Even if git is very easy to use, first when you start it is quit difficult since you have to memorize all the commands. Also it will take little time to be familiarized with git for a beginner. For a person with less programming skill, git will not be much easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have been using GitHub for the last two years. I recommend this for all programmers because it helps a lot in my projects. It meets all the requirement of a version control system. Thank you team for this wonderful project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When working in groups, the main problem faced was changes from a person will be overwritten by another person and also conflict resolution was a main issue.All these are easily solved by git. Also git branching and merge helps be test in live with out affecting the main branch.Also history is saved in git. So you can revert to ant stage , any time.

" The best tool to Manage Your Projects"

What do you like best?

I have been using Github for the past 4 years, and I am very much satisfied with there service. It is the best version control system. You can store your codes, update it. You can roll back to the previous code also as it keeps tracks of all the changes. It also provides you to collaborate in other peoples projects. There are a plethora of useful GitHub projects which will help to enhance the technical knowledge.

If you have an issue in your code just post it and I am sure someone from the community will answer it.

Github has a very vast and remarkable community.

What do you dislike?

One of the things I dislike about the Github is Private tier is a bit costly. For my company, we used Gitlab for private Tier.

There are limitations on the size of a file you can upload.

For a beginner, it might be a little difficult to understand the GitHub environment.

Also, one of the problems I struggle is to create a folder in desktop GitHub environment without command line interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a student and wants to learn, contribute to open source project and get the guidance from top developers, you should start using Github.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I started using Github in my college days, at that time I was using it for my project. After a certain point, I realized it is a very powerful tool. As it allows you to share your project to other developers who want to contribute. Similarly, I can also contribute to open source projects. The benefits I get is that working in such a huge environment with best developers boost my programming skills. Which help me to build my own startup.

"Great for sharing and storing code - an industry standard"

What do you like best?

I like how easy Github is to use and access plus it has integration with other systems and tools I use in my business. It was one of the first websites I started using for development when I was learning Git and learning the commands along with the system was fairly easy to get used to!

What do you dislike?

There was a slight learning curve but that is with any system. When I first started using Github there was no way to have a private repository without paying for a monthly subscription. Sometimes you just want to have a private repository for your own needs. Now with the new update private repositories are now free and if you need to have a team you can pay for better management.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely, an industry standard set up an account and start pushing your code!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps me store the code I write for clients and access any necessary data points. It's nice to have in case I need to pull any information down to my local computer. Plus I can access it anywhere, also if I need to add anyone into a project I have that option. Also, most designers and developers are familiar with the program so they can quickly hop on!

"Github the best tool for team development"

What do you like best?

GitHub is an excellent tool in the field of development and software, since it allows to share code among the work team, which facilitates teamwork, is able to make backup copies every time you code suffers a change, with which it is possible to return to previous versions in case of errors with the new changes.

Other highlights are its easy usability, its large active community, and it's free

What do you dislike?

The only disadvantage that github has is that in order to have a private project you must use its paid version, which does not have a high price, for everything else it is an excellent tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Github helps the company a lot when working as a team in the same project, being able to share information and changes made to the development that is being carried out, allowing to perform a better team work without any difficulty

"Seamless team collaboration"

What do you like best?

It's easy to onboard new developers into using git, and teach them our workflow process. GitHub Desktop makes it a lot easier to understand what's going on, and the repository history browser makes it really easy to see past code changes. It also enables us to quickly review all of the code that's being committed before it goes to production.

What do you dislike?

Pricing can be a bit steep for users who are working on their own side projects. Users can host projects for free but they must be publicly visible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GitHub is a great asset to any development team looking to keep their project safe, maintain high quality code and allow easy access from anywhere in the world.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use GitHub to host our git repository, and all developers use GitHub Desktop to interact with it. It has made team collaboration really easy, fast and safe. We have a clear history of which user made which changes and why, which has made debugging a lot easier.

Being able to work on multiple features at once and fluidly merge them has been an extremely valuable asset to our team, since we're able to commit code with confidence. We're able to quickly create, publish and share new branches to work together, and also safely store our changes in case our computers are damaged.

"Basic Necessity for all developers in IT sector"

What do you like best?

Github is a product without which you cannot cope up with the ever changing project and its requirements during the development phase.The clients are unaware of the technological features and thereby we have to try various things and keep adding and removing features to make sure they are satisfied.Now if we do this the naive way then we have to keep several backups to backtrack.Github has a really innovative way to do so.You can store your project versions just like a tree by creating branches when required and adding a new release.This nodes thereby make a whole tree having all the versions stored in a better way with brief notes.So it becomes easy to go back and shift to different version when required.This is why I like github. Also it makes collaborative updates much easy.

What do you dislike?

No, I like everything about github. Github is the only solution for me for hosting the projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend to the software developers of information technology sector to start using github. It is for sure the best git repository hosting service and might be used by many people but if you are not amongst them then do start using it and discover its benefits.Moreover its just overtaken by microsoft so we would get its support also.So it has many benefits to make you start using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using github for hosting all the projects which are in development phase on github.Using github I have got many benefits like backtracking is not a nightmare anymore and it can be done easily.Apart from that we can collaboratively update the repository by committing changes and pull and push requests to the branch.So it has many benefits and so we prefer using github.

What do you like best?

GitHub facilitates the processing and monitoring of changes not only in quantity but also in documents and information devices. Be able to see these changes in real time and see who has changed something, which is very useful.

What do you dislike?

Search can be improved because it's not so easy with the current configuration to find what I'm looking for. It has a large learning curve, only the creation of public and private repositories only by the payer.

"Easily have your code modified by the community"

What do you like best?

From remarking discourses on individual lines of code, to unequivocally requesting code audits from specific teammates, to combinations with different ceaseless incorporation (CI) and organization frameworks, Github is a completely included tool for confirming and following changes to your codebase. From the minute you push code up.Also, with a great API and webhooks, Github has an abundance of expansion indicates for building combinations tweak your workflow.

What do you dislike?

I'd like more granular command over which email notices I get (particularly the capacity to be advised of new remarks on a pull request without likewise being informed of each extra submit). And keeping in mind that the Reviews highlight which groups remarks into an at the same time "survey" is integral to my team's workflow, the failure to leave quickly, one-off remarks amidst an audit is some of the time constraining. In any case, these are minor bothers in a generally intense and adaptable tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If one is looking for a platform that enables to manage all projects together. Moreover providing easy ways of learning open source development then it is right to say GitHub is the best choice. Must try it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Github has enhanced the nature of both my team's code and learning of our framework and programming when all is said in done. Its tools for encouraging code surveys enable my team to share information about our stack and area while likewise giving chances to vet and enhance the code we transport.

"Flawless Git Experience"

What do you like best?

Github is the standard in easy to use git software. Everyone knows how to use it, and everyone has an account so it is very easy to code socially.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the main product is closed source. Github claims to love open source, but it refuses to open source its main offering like it's competitor Gitlab.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I remember I once sent out an email asking for my custom domain to be supported with https with github pages, which was a feature that had just launched. I got a reply within an hour saying that everything was ready.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm solving the problem of having a hosted git server. This is essential for any sort of complex software project. The biggest benefits would have to be the familiarity everyone has with GitHub and the numerous integrations it has.

"Github Review"

What do you like best?

GitHub facilitates the modification and monitoring of changes not only in the code but also in the documents and information of the equipment. Be able to see those changes in real time and see who edited what is a big help.

What do you dislike?

The search function could definitely be improved since it is not so easy to find what I am looking for with the current configuration. It has a great learning curve, they only let you create public and private repositories just paying, (which could leave 1 private for free at least)

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend the use of GitHub to all code developers to host or store your work on GitHub and have your project controlled by one version, in addition to being able to share your code and be able to enrich you with codes from other users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a senior software developer I need to manage several versions of codes for analysis and also to show them to the client for an orientation, so I use GitHub to host several versions of the same code using the GitHub controlled hosting, I also use GitHub to share my codes with other people as a reference.

"Github"

What do you like best?

It is a great way to share code and collaborate with developers all over the world easily. Many of the open source applications and projects are possible due to Github. It was the first website of it's kind. If we don't want our code to be public, we can just choose for it to be a private repository, as simple as that

What do you dislike?

It has no free private repositories unless you pay for it or you are a student. It should atleast have a trial for private repositories for those who want to try it out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can consider Github for small projects. Otherwise I would recommend Gitlab as it provides free private repos as well

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Github for collaboration inside the team for small and medium sized projects which donot require much validation for code. It isn't that feature rich so we cannot use it in full big sized projects. We also use it for free hosting of static website it provides.

"The best tool for code collaboration and version control"

What do you like best?

Github is the code sharing platform for most opensource apps. So we can see and change the code of that opensource projects simply just by cloning that project to our repo. Also, we can contribute to them by solving their bugs. If we do not want to share our code then we can create the private repository by just paying a little amount.

What do you dislike?

I think Github should have to provide at least one repository as a private for free for normal users so that they can just explore a trial. Another dislike is it gives lots of errors when the engineers are working on some projects. So, it is hard to master each and every error when merging the code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Everyone in the IT field should have a Github profile so that they can showcase their projects to others and contribute to this huge platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Github for collaborating on our company projects as well as my personal projects for teamwork and backup purpose. I realized that If we use Github for business then we can easily navigate through different versions of our code very easily and even go back to the previous commit if there is a need to.

"one of the best platforms to showcase your work which also provides great shareability."

What do you like best?

The ease of use and user friendly interface which makes repository creation and code uploading super easy.

The platform is really awesome and helps developers share and contribute to projects on the fly. It is super easy to commit the changes while notifying everyone about it. The provision for reporting issues comes in handy when acknowledging the developer.

What do you dislike?

The platform is really awesome and it is difficult to find any loopholes with it. But, i think Github can be more productive it it could recommend repositories based on ours.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a really fantastic and amazing platform for the developer community that makes it really smooth for the developers to share their code and review with other developers contributing to the project as well. I would definitely recommend Github to others who want to share their work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

contributions to apps through collaborative efforts from remote locations.

"GitHub: Websites for you and your projects"

What do you like best?

Git is a version tracking and control system that allows developers to share code with others. GitHub serves as a repository for git, and it is the most well-known web host for open-source software projects. From source code for cryptocurrencies to operating systems, GitHub hosts billions of bytes of code. The platform makes it much easier for teams of individuals to work together on projects. Most importantly, both registered and non-registered individuals may browse files and code that are hosted on the GitHub website.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike, It provides best hosting services.

However, there is a limitation that, it is mainly optimized for developers. Also, GitHub can be confusing to those who only need downloads.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend others to switch to GitHub because Github makes for easier contributions to your top open source projects. It has everything turned into Markdown. It had got some of the best documentation around. It also includes Gists and GitHub Pages, too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use GitHub for Publishing and sharing my own website for free with is a hosting service for git, a version tracking protocol. It is most well known as a repository for computer code. GitHub is a place where we as developers can make our open-source code available to the public and hence used widely in industries.

"Utiliza github para tener un control de versiones."

What do you like best?

GitHub facilita la modificación y el seguimiento de los cambios no sólo en el código, sino también en los documentos y la información del equipo. Ser capaz de ver esos cambios en tiempo real y ver quién editó lo que es una gran ayuda.

What do you dislike?

La función de búsqueda definitivamente podría mejorarse, ya que no es tan fácil encontrar lo que estoy buscando con la configuración actual.

Tiene una gran curva de aprendizaje, solo te dejan crear repositorios públicos y privados solo pagando, (que podrían dejar 1 privado de gratis por lo menos...)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo el uso de github a todos los desarrolladores de código para alojar o almacenar su trabajo en github y tener su proyecto controlado por una versiones, ademas de poder compartir tu código y poder enriquecerte de códigos de otros usuarios.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Como desarrollador de php requiero manejar varias versiones de códigos para su análisis y también para mostrárselos al cliente para una orientacion, así que uso github para alojar varias versiones del mismo código usando el hosting controlado por versión de github, también uso github para compartir mis códigos con otras personas como referencia.

"In love with GitHub"

What do you like best?

- Useful projects on GitHub in open-source world

- You could share your info (code, presentation) in easy way

- The best place to all your programming staff

- Private repositories

What do you dislike?

- The one thing that I don't understand why we still don't have "save for later" functionality (put some repo to saved), people use "star" not only as "like" but as "save for later", that's why some of lists/how-tos have so many stars (but probably should not?).

- Also, I didn't find a GitHub bug tracker, so if something is broken you could post it only on twitter.

- Probably up to 3 repositories could be for free for private needs :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A lot of things that I use in the daily job are hosted on GitHub (e.g. .NET Core, Angular 4), you could navigate by code, create the issue, answer on other issues, help to improve technology/framework. Also, sometimes I share my own code with other developers and develop my pet projects in private repositories.

What do you like best?

every day I use GitHub, I always interact with it because in my office using GitHub on our project. However, the real reason is not because my office uses it, but I like it because it's really helpful to integrate with my teammates, and we can control every job of every member of my team. Not only that, we can use it to save my projects there. Over all, as a programmer I love it and feel comfortable with it.

What do you dislike?

Probably just about the cost. Because I still use the free version

"Robust and for the masses"

What do you like best?

The clean and intuitive design of the website. Everything is easy to access and leverage to bolster a project. Every repository is designed for team use which automatically accounts for personal use, and the Explore feature is a great way of discovering projects and communities.

What do you dislike?

The various limits on free accounts are too restricting. I found myself needing to create multiple private repositories for projects to dabble in code, but did not want the public to take advantage of. GitHub falls short in this aspect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the Internet's premier code repository with a respectable amount of free features and a robust of paid features. In any case, GitHub meets everyone's need seamlessly and I would highly recommend leveraging the tool and the community to create, share, and maintain online projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My company tasked me with building a website, and as such, I needed a service where I can store and manage versions of my code. I have been using GitHub for personal use, and it was an easy choice to use it for commercial purposes. The website is designed with everyone's use cases in mind.
