Nov 14, 2022 · 1 min read · Post a comment

For all of you beginners out there, I want to clarify the difference between Git and GitHub. Clearly they are not the same, so here’s a pretty simple and straight answer.


  • Git


Git is an open-source version control system (VCS) tool written in C by the one and only Linus Torvalds. Manages and tracks any change made to a source code software shared between you and your teammates, if any.

Alternately, GitHub is Microsoft’s cloud-based hosting platform for private and public Git repositories.
