Overall Satisfaction with GitHub
I am a student and for each and every piece of code that we write for our project or assignments we upload everything to Github. I have a profile where all the academic projects and assignments are kept and updated regularly. Pretty much every student in software engineering is aware of Github and uses it as a daily tool for coding purposes.
- The user interface is really good.
- All the updates and analytics it shows about our work and contributions like commits and forks from other repositories.
- It should allow usage of private repositories for at least 6-7 months at the time of creation of an account.
- The windows software to use GitHub is very confusing. It can have more improvements in user interface.
It shows statistics of your Github commits and contribution. It also allows unlimited users on public as well as private repos.
If you are a team of students who are working on a project, then GitHub is a well-suited option. Apart from that, If you want to contribute or start an open-source project then you can create public repositories on Github. If you are looking for private repository and have a free account then Github should not be considered.
