The repository is a room, container, or place where we can store things. Github is the platform that provides this facility for the repository. The Github platform allows us to store or upload our projects on it. We can create repositories with suitable names and can store our project. Github repositories are shareable so that you can share them with anyone. Also, you can make it private.
