Introduction

GitHub is the one of the most popular version control and hosting service providers in the world, to understand Github, you have to understand Git first.

One common reason that people use Git is for the purpose of version control, which is quite self-explanatory: to manage the version of your codes.

GitHub fulfilled this purpose one step further as it’s hosted in cloud instead of storing everything in your local environment.
