GitHub Basics

GitHub is the largest hosting service for remote Git repositories, which integrates professional collaboration tools with the power of Git. But GitHub is more than just a service, it is a community. With tens of millions of developers sharing and collaborating on open source projects, GitHub is the premier location for finding a project to join.

With GitHub collaboration tools, it is possible to fork a project, make pull requests, submit issues, and socially collaborate with developers. With the GitHub web interface, it is possible to complete many of the traditional tasks of Git right from the browser without any clone or copy the files to your local machine.
