GitHub Review

Git Hooks and SSH keys are useful, and storing projects in private repositories is free

What is our primary use case?

We use GitHub for versioning and to provide a place on the cloud to store code so that people can work on it together.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the Git Hooks and SSH keys.

The Projects Tab, which shows you the todo list and the progress for projects, is very helpful.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see integration with Slack such that all of the changes made in GitHub are reflected there. You would simply enter the Slack URL and the notifications about code changes would be forwarded.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using GitHub for at least a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were a few cases when we were unable to reach GitHub but for the most part, it is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have different people in the company who are working on different projects on GitHub. It is safe to say that we have about 50 people in total who are using the platform.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not been in contact with technical support. With respect to community support, I have noticed that it is pretty evolved. I have used it often and find that it is very useful.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used to use BitBucket, but when Microsoft announced that private repositories would be free on GitHub, we switched.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is super easy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The private repositories are free, which is very good.

What other advice do I have?

GitHub is definitely a platform that I recommend people use.

I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud
