Overall Satisfaction with GitHub

We primarily use GitHub as it relates to those external from our company. It allows us to use their utilities/apps, contribute to them, subscribe to them, and ultimately collaborate with them in any further development that is needed. It is also a great place for us to store internal projects that we would like to be open source and available to other contributors in the development community.
  • Version Control
  • Cloning applications
  • Merging code/development changes
  • Viewing/Presenting code changes
  • Built-in tutorial into the UI
  • It has saved the development community as a whole tons of time facilitating and collaborating open-source applications in a version-controlled environment.
GitHub is probably most comparable to Bitbucket in how it works and represents its data. SVN is better for internal use only, though requires that you manage things on your own server. Cornerstone is a locally run software that is great to connect to SVN with and helps manage versions.
Whether a private or public project (though private costs money) GitHub is extremely well suited for a web-based, version controlled repository for any online application.
