Overall Satisfaction with GitHub

GitHub provides us with access to open source software and small scripts of code that we can use instead of writing the code ourselves. Knowing that the code is critiqued and improved by other developers and generally follows best practices, this allows us to analyze it's suitability and compatibility quickly. GitHub provides logs of the changes to this software to assist in bug finding and allows us to contribute to the software if we require a change.
  • GUI for source control is great.
  • Storing source code efficiently with simple commands.
  • Searching for code is in a code base is easy and works well.
  • Atom takes too long to load.
  • Github saves developers hours by providing easy and secure access to quality software and code. I would estimate my time saved using GitHub, as opposed to an independent source for finding and downloading code, is about 20 hours through my 6 years of experience using it.
Compared to CodeCommit, GitHub is publicly available.
It is an almost perfect product for what it does and it's incredibly valuable so everyone supports it.
