    GitHub offers online project hosting using the git version control system. It's basically a place online to easily share code with others in an easy and managable fashion.

    The best thing you can do is read the information on their site as it covers anything you might like to know: https://github.com/

    Social coding. I can store my code on there for projects and easily share them with others.

    The main GitHub page leads to multiple articles and tutorials but you can start from things like Wikipedia as a foundation. As mentioned earlier, it's a foundation for social coding. An example is the simple ability to share your code examples with other people, or search through other people's code to find ways to solve your own problems. Also, there are other tools out there, like bl.ocks.org that act as "viewers" over github code, allowing you to do things like actually see the running code, such as graphical visualizations from the D3.js library. Very cool.

    In short, github is very useful and I suggest spending the time to learn it.
