What is GitHub?
GitHub is a code hosting platform that allows you and others to work together on projects from different locations.
This service can also be divided into two sections: Git and Hub. Git is a tool that lets code developers keep track of revisions to their work. Hub refers to the code writing community as a whole that utilizes GitHub.
