The difference between Git and GitHub

Any coding enthusiast interested in learning more about Git and GitHub knows that coding relies heavily on grammar, a programming language’s naming convention, and intuitive resources. When we hear the terms Java and JavaScript, we only see a superficial link between them. C++, on the other hand, gives a hint as to where it came from. Python’s logo is made up of interwoven snakes, which have a history. It is named after the Monty Python sketch comedy ensemble.

Anyone learning about Git vs. GitHub for the first time may make an unintended connection.

So, what’s the difference between Git and GitHub? Is there a link between Git and GitHub that isn’t as obvious as a link between Java and JavaScript?

“Git and GitHub are significantly more connected than Java and JavaScript, with some differences between them,” says the moment of truth.

“What is the difference between Git and GitHub?” you might wonder. Let’s start by answering the question, “What are Git and GitHub?”


What is Git?

Git is an open-source version control system that is used to efficiently manage projects ranging in size from small to huge. During software development, this software keeps track of changes in a set of files and can help coordinate work between programmers working on source code together.

Linus Torvalds founded it in the year 2005 with the goal of producing Linux kernels. It was initially developed with the help of other Kernel engineers. Since 2005, Junio Hamano has been the core maintainer.

Git’s major goals are speed and data integrity. It also allows non-linear and distributed workflows. As a result, it has been demonstrated to be a high-quality version control system.

What is GitHub?

GitHub, to be precise, is a website and cloud-based service that can assist developers in managing and storing their code. Changes in a person’s code can be managed and tracked. It’s a service for hosting Git repositories in the cloud.

It is just for-profit businesses, unlike Git. It offers an easy-to-use UI. People also use it to manage a variety of other tasks.

Chris Wanstrath, P.J. Hyett, Tom Preston-Werner, and Scott Chacon created the GitHub services. The company was founded in 2007 in San Francisco and began operations in February 2008.
