I've used Github for both my own work and used it as part of a team. I've since standardized on Github whenever I have work that I am in charge of keeping the source. I think it's a great product, and I would strongly recommend it to a friend. In fact, I recommended it to my kids, too.
Pros : It's got a clean web user interface, that allows people to browse through projects, and also has a strong API. In turn, there are a lot of great integrations, and the desktop client is very handy to have.
Cons : It can be intimidating for first time users. I've had many people be very confused by the the concept and implementation.
Version control is unparalleled, the social aspect is wonderful, and the features cater to ALL developers - whether you're developing product documentation or complex, multi-tiered code.
Pros : GitHub is an extremely social development platform Everything can be commented on, much like a social network. It's much better than a social network, though, as pages load quickly and are responsive on mobile. GitHub lets you use the website to do most of the work if you want. An example is, if I want to create text files or basic files with syntax, I can do that in my browser. Creating a Wiki is a simple one-button push as well.
Cons : The limitation of private repositories for individual users. As a company you can afford to spend some bucks to get private repositories and all Github features for them, but as an individual Github will not be that useful if you don't throw some money at it.

GitHub is the best solution for the teams and individuals for developing any kind of project, everyone can collaboratively work on the code and control the revisions of code as it work on Git, distributed revision control system. And also best for showcasing your own open source work to other developers. Works flawlessly from the command line or from TortoiseGit/RabbitGit. A must to try for all the developer, as it will always save your time, money and efforts.
Pros : 1. Collaborative development among team. 2. Revision control over code 3. Free for open source project development. 4. Commit and push code right from your PC into web repository.
Cons : 1. A bit confusing for new users 2. No private repositories can be created in free plan, while gitbucket provides few free private repositories.
