GitHub Valuable Features

I'm curious as to what DevOps Tools can be integrated into GitHub to get it to be on part with the capabilities that come out of the box in GitLab, or whether we should just switch to GitLab to get all of those capabilities.

The stability is quite good.

The scalability is excellent.

We've found the technical support to be very helpful.

Overall, it's a very good product.

GitHub provides good time reduction and this is what I value the most. My team uses GitHub for working remotely. Security is also a good feature of the solution. It's as if the solution creates a security barrier in the server, whereby I can push changes they make to my server once they come to GitHub. 

The solution has a lot of features. Should my developer leave tomorrow, the changes he has made will remain, even as another developer could do the work.

The features that I have found most valuable are that it can support you for most of the road map and it can automate some tasks which works really well with collaboration with the teams. They are really interested in how they organize the history of the code itself which is good.

The way we can manage the system is very useful. It'd great for managing code. 

You can have the main branch, and then create another branch, and easily merge them together if you like. 

You can effectively manage code reviews by issuing pull requests. Fellow developers can review my code, which helps ensure that the code is written correctly and clean. It's a useful exchange of information. 

The flow process helps us keep our applications stable. The released version is always running smoothly.

Once you get familiar with the system, it's very easy to use.

The product has a very user-friendly interface and user-friendly security.

It has a lot of features from the code development perspective. You get a lot of features such as repo, commit, merge, and branch. You can play around and do things on the fly.

It is easy and simple to deploy. It is also easier to use when working from home.
