What is Github?
GitHub is the single largest host for Git repositories, and is the central point of collaboration for millions of developers and projects. A large percentage of all Git repositories are hosted on GitHub, and many open-source projects use it for Git hosting, issue tracking, code review, and other things. So while it’s not a direct part of the Git open source project, there’s a good chance that you’ll want or need to interact with GitHub at some point while using Git professionally.
Procedure to create github account?
The first thing you need to do is set up a free user account. Simply visit https://github.com, choose a user name that isn’t already taken, provide an email address and a password, and click the big green “Sign up for GitHub” button.
What is a README File?
In simple words, we can describe a README file as a guide that gives users a detailed description of a project you have worked on.
It can also be described as documentation with guidelines on how to use a project. Usually it will have instructions on how to install and run the project.
Benefits Of Using Github
GitHub, can be divided into the Git, and the Hub. The service includes access controls as well as a number of collaboration features like tools for basic task management and for all projects you handle.
GitHub hosts your source code projects in a variety of different programming languages and keeps track of the various changes made to every iteration. So, the “Git” implies the version control system; a tool which allows developers to keep track of the constant revisions to their code. The “Hub” is the community of like-minded individuals who participate.
It is all about the collaborative effort of the community, in reviewing, improving, and deriving new ideas from the uploaded code.
