GitHub is a development platform where developers can store their projects and be able to network with likeminded users. The “Git” in GitHub stands for the open-source version control software that is used as a command-line tool. Open-source indicates that the source code software is available to the public for use and modification from its original design and version control records those changes to the file over time so that the user can recall which versions were used at a later time. https://www.howtogeek.com/180167/htg-explains-what-is-github-and-what-do-geeks-use-it-for/
