Git is a version control system for software development. It is a distributed revision control system with an emphasis on speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows. Git was initially designed and developed for Linux kernel development. As with most other distributed version control systems, every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with complete history and full version-tracking capabilities, independent of network access or a central server.

A publishing tool, a Version Control System, or a Collaboration Platform! These can be some of the defining words for the two very famous web-hosting Git repositories: Bitbucket and Github. Git is widely used amongst the programmers and developers for re-developing a maintained code. With this technology, a local and web copy of projects can be saved. 

How Does Version Control System Works?

A Version Control System simply allows saving multiple snapshots of single project. Say, we have a project and files of code. When we work on it for some time, we might find the need to create a safe point of it (which is S1 in the figure).

Now, if we want to work more on the same project, we can copy the code and modify it and then again create its safe point (which is S2 in the figure). And likewise, it is possible to continue modifying the project (S3) but at the same time maintain history of previous projects as well. Say, at some point of time, our project did not work well (S4). So, we have the option to go back to the previous version (S3) and get started again.

When a Git repository is created, a master branch is developed and as long as we generate safe points, the master branches are added. Now, there can be requirement of adding new features to a project that is working currently (S4). So, when one developer is busy adding features to the project (F1), another can continue to make relevant modifications and work on it (S5) and same …

To properly understand GitHub, let’s divide it into two words ‘Git’ and ‘Hub’. Git is basically a ‘Distribution Version Control’ (DVC) and ‘Source Code Management’ (SCM) system widely used by software programmers while Hub means the efficient centre of any activity. Hence, GitHub is a web based hosting service for Git repository.

GitHub is equipped with various advanced features that make it widely used and trusted by users (particularly programmers). There are a number of reasons to love GitHub, and this article gives you my top 10 reasons to love GitHub. 

1. Availability And Rights Of Modifications
GitHub is an open source platform that is easily available and can be used with any operating system. Thus, it is in the spotlight and a number of users are pleased working with it. Full permission is granted to make any changes to the public repository by the developers. The users can get recommendations on their projects and can modify them for better results.  

2. Version Control System
Since GitHub is a version control system, it allows developers to work efficiently on a long project. Any changes made in a file or particular code can be recalled using a specific version later. This in turn makes it convenient for the developers to work on lengthy projects with ease.

3. Further Development of Programs and Projects
One remarkable feature associated with GitHub is ‘Forking’. GitHub permits creation of…
