GitHub is a web-based platform that supports version control using Git, the open-source distributed system. The software allows developers to collaborate on projects and track revisions to code, making it easier for teams to work together on software development projects. GitHub provides tools for tasks such as bug tracking, feature requests, task management and wikis for documentation. Is widely used by developers and companies around the world for open-source projects but also offers paid accounts for private repositories that can limit access to project stakeholders or team members only.
