Hi all, in this blog I would like to share few insights on how you can leverage GitHub for your development platform inspired by the way you work.
Many people come to GitHub because they want to contribute to open source 📖 projects, or they're invited by teammates or classmates who use it for their projects.
Modern app lifecycle management extends beyond source code management or version control to encompass full lifecycle practices that integrate teams and functions, eliminate waste, and reduce cycle times across every aspect of software development from ideation to production operations.
What is GitHub
At its heart, GitHub is a collaboration platform. From open source to business, you can host and review code, manage projects, and build software alongside 50 million developers.
GitHub brings teams together to work through problems, move ideas forward, and learn from each other along the way.
