GitHub is an open-source, version-control (Git) and collaboration platform (Hub) for software developers and runs on a SaaS business model.
The source code of a project is uploaded on Git and the community can track all the alterations and modifications that happen on the code. The Hub facilitates collaboration of the developers and provides tools to manage the projects. GitHub offers benefits such as Easy documentation, code repository, as well as integration with Amazon and Google Cloud. GitHub also offers Code Climate to track feedbacks received on open source code and has the ability to highlight syntax in over 200 different programming languages.
