GitHub.com provides programmers with an ecosystem of development, collaboration and project management tools and services. While it began as a place for developers to collaborate on open source development projects, it is increasingly used by businesses as a key component of their software development practices. One million organizations are currently working with GitHub and its offerings, according to Sears.
- GitHub is bringing to GitHub.com some of the more advanced capabilities already offered in the company’s GitHub Enterprise on-premise/private cloud software.
- GitHub.com already provides developers with unlimited private repositories, team and user level permissions, pull requests, code review and project management tools.
- With the new features and functionality, development teams can more easily scale their projects while spending less time on administrative tasks.
