We are just customers and end-users. We are using the latest version of the solution. We have some internal solutions deployed. We have our own private server, a GitHub server, and it always is properly maintained and always updated with the latest version for better performance. I would recommend the solution, however, I would suggest those who intend to use it get the proper training on it first. I would rate the solution at a nine out of ten.

We aren't partners. We are simply customers and end-users. We are still on the previous version. We are still waiting for more stability from the latest version before we update everything. It's a great product. That said, it needs some work still to be able to do everything that GitLab can do, for example. I'm not sure what the future plans are for GitHub. I know they're working on adding a lot of capabilities now that they're part of Microsoft. They're probably going to make it a much more robust solution - not just a version control system. My perspective is as an enterprise on-prem user. I don't know from an open-source community standpoint, how they feel about the changes. I'm sure most of the users are pretty happy with it as a hosting platform. However, my need is specific to my organizational uses. I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten.

My recommendation for anyone thinking about GitHub is that it is the best solution - except for the price. On a scale of one to ten, I would give GitHub a nine.

This is a good solution, but it really needs support for CICD. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
