Git and GitHub

Both git and github are free tools for building open source version control systems for all types of developers that code software applications and web-based user interfaces.

If you were to do a quick google search, then you’ll find plenty of content!

But I’m here to differentiate these ‘git’ terms upfront. Not just for learning pleasure but to help out with my very own simple definitions.


is the workflow method or tool used to make and track changes to a project’s source code.


is a platform or community that enables programmers to share code and collaborate on projects.
