GitHub and Bitbucket are two services that allow you to manage your projects using Git in the Cloud. These services represent an advantage because they eliminate the need to administer a local server and guarantee the tranquility of having a backup of your information which is always accessible through the network.

Github is a web-based hosting service for software development projects that use the Git version control system. It was released in 2008 and belongs to GitHub, Inc. It was written using Ruby on Rails and Erlang.

Github was the precursor of a very used functionality nowadays known as pull request. A pull request is a useful feature that allows a developer to notify another about changes that were made in an application.

On the other hand, Bitbucket is a web-based hosting service for projects that use the Mercurial and Git version control system. It was launched in 2008 by the company Atlassian Software and is written in Python language.
