Very slow and not intuitive; it would be my last choice for version control systems.The UI is a little confusing at times and seems a little outdated. It needs a lot of improvement. It is suited for small projects and fewer number of projects. But if there are huge projects and many projects to be maintained in a portfolio, its a little hard to manage.

GitHub

GitHub has created and worked on a very well-designed interface that is easy-to-use and intuitive. For almost all companies, GitHub is the best solution for VCM, as it has an all-inclusive feature set that is optimal for small to large Engineering teams, regardless of your company's stage. The only thing that can really get in the way of a company hosting their code on GitHub is the cost...

  • GitHub does a great job at managing issues and assignment of issues with team members. Their easy-to-navigate issue portion of each repository makes it easy to identify which issues have to do with each branch, and which team member(s) are assigned to each issue.
  • GitHub has a variety of useful integrations with other software like Slack, which makes it easy to comment on code commits in a team-chat setting.
  • GitHub's wiki section of each code repository is a very useful tool to introduce in-depth documentation pertaining to the code in that repository.

Cons

  • Very hard or confusing process when compared to other version control tools like TFS /GIT etc.
  • More features would be definitely helpful. The UI seems a little outdated when compared to many modern tools
  • Very slow tool.

  • There are certain developers whose work I rely heavily on. I wish it was easier to browse and search all the repositories they contribute to.
  • I'd like to see more granular control of how I watch repositories that I don't own. If I choose "watching", I get notified every time something happens. I'd like to be able to choose what events I want to be notified about (new push, new tag, etc). I'd also like to be able to choose a digest notification where I get one email a day with the events I'm interested in.
  • It would be great if there was a way to automatically keep forks up to date. It has support for merging, so why couldn't a toggle to keep a fork updated with the upstream. That way everytime a commit gets pushed it would get rebased into my fork.

- Easy to use compared to other version control software. UI interface makes it easy to use, as well as protects against making a major mistake by deleting code, etc.- UI looks modern.- Support for multiple platforms, which I assume will only get better with time.- Student benefits are awesome!- The size limitations on their repositories make sense to me. Not too crazy but realistic from a business perspective.

Alternatives Considered

We picked GitHub because it's what I was most familiar with when we started. We're testing out self-hosted Gitlab because it not only handles all the features we're using on GitHub, but it also has a continuous integration service which is currently implemented by a third party (CircleCI) with GitHub. We started testing out Bitbucket in the larger context of the Atlassian products. Bitbucket was great, but we found everything else (JIRA, Bamboo, etc) to be too complicated to use.

Return on Investment

  • Better team coordination.
  • Avoid confusion by having one place for all documentation and code.
  • Better project management by having different work streams.

  • Speed for collaboration between developers has a tremendous positive impact.
  • Github's profile provides a chart that shows you the code contribution level from different developers and it has become the de-facto way of showing someone in a job interview how deeply involved in coding you currently are. This feature of Github saves a lot of time during the interview process for us.
  • Github provides free hosting for open source projects and that is a huge win for the community, in addition to providing a positive lift to companies like ours.
