Overall Satisfaction with GitHub

In my organization, GitHub is used by the development team, so everyone can keep track of the version control for the code we produce on a daily basis in projects.
  • It's easy to use and has a very intuitive platform on the web.
  • There's a whole bunch of tutorials online about how to use GitHub via the command line.
  • Anyone who codes can create a free account on GitHub and start contributing with code.
  • We can only have one private repository with a free account.
  • Increase in productivity, considering that teams can contribute with code on a daily basis.
  • Ownership of code and easy to fix bugs by identifying them on the platform.
Bitbucket is a very similar tool, but you can have multiple private repositories and it's easy to integrate it with JIRA.
Never had the need to use GitHub's customer support. The tool is already very intuitive, has a lot of FAQ on their website, or you can easily find your needs by just googling the issue. Also, GitHub has abundant documentation online for any specific scenario that the user may have.
