Collaborate on code

Code collaboration and review are built into the development process with GitHub. Share work, discuss changes, and get feedback in one place to write quality code.

On your servers or in the cloud

Run GitHub Enterprise on your servers as a virtual appliance, on AWS GovCloud or Azure, or let us host the code for you on GitHub.com, whatever your security requires.

Foster innovation at your agency

GitHub enables you to easily accept, continuously test, and rapidly deploy new ideas to build better software, faster.

Software built your way

Integrate third party tools, from project management to continuous integration, to build software in the way that works best for your agency.

InnerSource inside your agency

Build your agency’s software the way open source maintainers build theirs. Transparency and code reuse can help your team build better code.

Enterprise controls that agencies need

Encourage teams to work together while providing essential controls for employees and contractors alike using organizations and LDAP or CAS.

Public engagement, developer community

Engage with 17 million developers using GitHub. Publish open source software on GitHub.com. Onboard, train, and recruit developers with ease.

Skip the paperwork

GitHub.com's terms of service are approved by the GSA and most plans fall below the micro-purchase threshold. Purchase GitHub Enterprise with major government acquisition schedules.
