Overall Satisfaction with GitHub

GItHub is being used as the main repository for version controlling all of our software. It provides a safe house and central location for storage as well as facilitates permissions for accessibility.
  • Version control
  • Permissions for access
  • Public vs. private repositories
  • Search across all public projects
  • Negligible cost for the security it offers in reliability
  • Business standard for a code repository
  • Easy means of code sharing for newly onboarded members
Bitbucket didn't offer enough of an incentive to switch our current repository. When Microsoft acquired GitHub, we started looking at other alternatives, and decided to stay for convenience.
It is great for open source software as well as for your own private repository. It scales well against large or small projects and provides an easy way to navigate through the code base without the need of an IDE. Security is top notch and pushing and pulling is a breeze when you have the correct credentials.
