Git is a version control system for tracking changes in computer files and coordinating work on those files among multiple people. It is primarily used for source code management in software development, but it can be used to keep track of changes in any set of files. As a distributed revision control system it is aimed at speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows. GitHub is a Web-based Git version control repository hosting service. It is mostly used for computer code. It offers all of the distributed version control and source code management functionality of Git as well as adding its own features.  You can visit the link below: https://www.google.com/search?q=what+is+github&oq=What+is+git&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l3.13369j0j7&client=ms-android-samsung&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8


Git is a distributed revision control system. It's by no means the only one. In roughly chronological order there are.. SCCS - source code control system (really old) RCS - revision control system (still used by some sys admins for configuration files) CVS - concurrent version system (tons of legacy code still uses this) Subversion/Apache Subversion Mercurial Git Fossil ... to name but a few open source offerings. There is also a multitude of commercial packages. See https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_version_control_software https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Version_control If you specifically want to learn git then go to https://git-scm.com/docs/gittutorial
