GitHub – The AI-powered developer platform

GitHub is the AI-powered developer platform to build, scale, and deliver secure software.

GitHub is often thought of as just a repository service, or sometimes as a repository service with attached CI/CD functionality. However, GitHub now offers a platform that covers the entire development life cycle, from writing applications to building and releasing. GitHub serves as the foundational platform for DevOps collaboration and automation. Through the lens of developer experience, it is the hub for InnerSource initiatives and houses code essential for platform engineering. Furthermore, this is empowered by AI. Whether you are writing code or reviewing it, GitHub’s AI supports you in various scenarios.

The capabilities of GitHub can be divided into five main categories: powered by AI, collaboration, productivity, security, and scale. Let’s look at each one in turn.
