GitHub is an amazing service that much of the Perl community has adopted, but there are still a few holdouts using their own git repos, Subversion, and even CVS. I’m here to tell you that other than writing tests, there’s very little you could do to improve your software development process more than moving your applications and modules to GitHub. It’s not just a hosted git repository. They back up your repos, provide collaboration and documentation tools. They even provide plugins for other repositories so that if you prefer to use Mercurial locally, you can still use GitHub. And if your app is open source, you host it with them for free! Make a new years resolution and switch to GitHub.
Here’s how they describe themselves:
GitHub is version control for software development and so much more. Whether it’s a weekend side project, your favorite open source library, a startup destined for glory, or your company’s app, GitHub helps everyone work together with tools for easier collaboration and more visibility.
