In short, Git refers to the revision control system itself, while GitHub is a cloud based service that helps you to manage repositories that use Git.

Git

  • A revision control system that helps you keep track of your source code history

  • You do not need GitHub to use Git

GitHub

  • A cloud hosted service that helps you manage your Git repositories

  • Allows you to share your repositories with others and access other people's repositories

  • A place where you can store remote backups of your local repositories

  • Includes additional project management features outside of standard Git features: assigning tasks, setting permissions, assigning roles for collaborators etc.
