Most developers have heard of GitHub and might even use it every day. A large number of developers use GitHub primarily to store their source code so it can be available for anyone can view and contribute to. But GitHub is for so much more than storing code.

Ranging from managing projects to running unit tests in the browser to shipping code to your distribution or server of choice. Let's face it, you can do nearly EVERYTHING in GitHub. In this session we will show all the ways developers can enhance their productivity by using GitHub the platform.
