Key differentiators & advantages of GitHub
- Easily manage teams within organizations.Whether you're running an open source project or a Fortune 500 company, organizations simplify team management.With teams, you can give your developers as much or as little power as they need — from the ability to create projects on behalf of your organization to read-only access on existing projects.
- Text entry with understated power.Rather than dozens of buttons, we rely on the simplicity of GitHub Flavored Markdown for formatting text. The autocompleter makes quick work of mentioning people and teams, creating links to other issues, and adding the perfect Emoji. :zap:Adding images is as simple as dragging and dropping from your desktop. For an even more distraction-free writing experience, you can use the fullscreen Zen Mode.
