Things you may not know GitHub offers

What do you think of when you hear the name GitHub?

Not that long ago, I thought of one thing only - version control.

Now, I would think its pretty likely that this may be all that you think of when you hear GitHub too.

And that's ok!

GitHub does version control incredibly well, and for a lot of people GitHub is the only version control service they have ever used.

And like I mentioned above, until recently I also had this viewpoint.

So what's changed?

Well, quite a few things have changed.

First of all, on 29th May 2020 I became a GitHub Campus Expert. This has given me more of a reason to explore what GitHub has to offer.

Secondly, I became the web editor of my college at university, and subsequently had the ability to create a web committee that needs managing.

Finally, Covid happened, and there was a sudden need to have all my team organisation online.

What have I found?

Of course, there are many other things GitHub has to offer, but these are the ones I have found the most interesting/useful so far.

Is there anything you think I've missed? Leave it in the comments 😀

One thing I want to add is that GitHub also provide static web page hosting on GitHub pages.
Like mine
