GitHub is a web-based version-control and collaboration platform for software developers. Git is used to store the source code for a project and track the complete history of all changes to that code. It allows developers to collaborate on a project more effectively by providing tools for managing possibly conflicting changes from multiple developers. GitHub allows developers to change, adapt and improve software from its public repositories for free, but it charges for private repositories, offering various paid plans. Each public or private repository contains all of a project's files, as well as each file's revision history. Repositories can have multiple collaborators and can be either public or private.

Since the GitHub environment is hosted on the cloud and shared across multiple users, it is important for every GitHub account owner to keep track of the changes happening in his/her account at regular intervals. This is where eG Enterprise giving helping hands to the GitHub account owners.
