What is GitHub  - SSTTEK Academy


GitHub is a platform that provides hosting services for software development projects. It allows developers to create, manage, share, and collaborate on code repositories. GitHub operates using the distributed version control system Git and is generally considered the first choice for open-source software projects. 

The key features offered by GitHub include: 

  • Repository Management: Enables developers to host and manage their code. Users can create code repositories for their projects on GitHub, make changes, track version history, and share code with other developers. 
  • Issue Tracking: Provides an issue tracking system to track and manage issues such as bugs, suggestions, or other topics in projects. Developers can open issues, comment on open issues, work on issues, and track the status of issues. 
  • Collaboration and Code Review: Developers can collaborate on projects and send code to each other. Code review features facilitate the process of reviewing and discussing code changes. 
  • Project Pages and Documentation: Allows you to create web pages that introduce your projects and share documentation. This can be used to explain the purpose of the project, its usage, and contribution guidelines. 
  • Integration and Automation: GitHub can easily integrate with other development tools through various integrations. This ensures that automated tests, deployment processes, and other development processes work in sync with GitHub. 
  • GitHub is a popular platform used by both individual software developers and large companies. While some of GitHub’s services are available for free, there are paid plans for advanced features. 

If you’re a software developer or looking to get involved in the software development process, learning GitHub would be beneficial.
