Git is an open-source version control system that tracks who made what change when across software projects.
Publish open source software on GitHub.com or collaborate privately and securely behind your agency's firewall.
GitHub's issue tracking tools give you day-to-day visibility into your project's success, without the need for lengthy meetings.
Collaborate openly while still limiting access to a team, to select stakeholders, or to an entire organization.
If you don't already have one, sign up for an individual GitHub account that's specific to you.
If you've already got a personal GitHub account, simply add and confirm your government email.
An organization is your official presence on GitHub. Once logged in, create a free organization. You can always upgrade later.
Prefer to host your own GitHub instance? Request a free trial to get started.
There's a semi-private group of government employees using GitHub to share best practices for software collaboration within government.
If the government email associated with your account is verified, you should have access.
