GitHub is a development platform inspired by the way you work. From open source to business, you can host and review code, manage projects, and build software alongside 28 million developers.
Huge number of open source projects & an industry standard to showcase developer portfolio makes Github the most popular choice. Not having private repos in the free plan is painful though.
If you can afford the monthly plan for private repos, Github should be your default choice (given the huge community & large number of open-source projects).
