Overall Satisfaction with GitHub

Git is very good for agile planning and maintaining the code according to different versions. In our project we work on three release cycle in parallel so to have different branches and merging the code is a big task which GitHub has resolved. It makes EPIC planning more easy when there is less dependency on branches.
  • GitHub is easy to use and handle i.e. not much training you need to be if implemented in project.
  • Also merging capability and solving merge conflicts is easy in GitHub.
  • GitHub is a costly tool so not every organization can afford the license of it.
  • GitHub has security issues because it upload data on cloud which is venerable to attack.
  • Version control
  • Easy pipeline view
  • Additional review and approval
  • Save time per day per developer
  • Increases code quality
  • Easy for code sharing and visibility accross multiple developers
GitHub is distributed model while perforce is more centralised .i.e. Developers can easily download full change history.
Git is better in terms of performance as it provides faster result.
Also Git is open source and available free of cost. Git is also storage effective with multiple branches.
Tracking changes also feels easier in Git

Do you think GitHub delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with GitHub's feature set?


Did GitHub live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of GitHub go as expected?


Would you buy GitHub again?


It could easily be considered as Master of version control tools.
It is very easy to integrate with third parties.
It provides visibility in scrum planning.
it is very much capable of giving the devops pipeline view and understands the overall product need.
the only drawback is the pricing for the license which might not be affordable if you are a small startup. The open source platform makes it vulnerable for the hackers to get into
