    GIT is a version control system. Github is an online provider that uses GIT to provide project hosting and version control. MS doesn't offer access to Github. They provide their own GIT-based service.

    Hi,

    You have also https://visualstudio.github.com/ that allows to access to GitHub from within VS (works also with the Community Edition). The point is to distinguish between the service on which your version control system is actually hosted and which "protocol" is used to access this service.

    Try perhaps https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vs/alm/code/overview for a comparison.

    u said we can access github from visual studio web site

    Sorry, what I meant is that you can create a project at https://github.com (which is a service provider) and access this project using the Visual Studio Community IDE using this extension.

    If you create a Git project at Visual Studio Team Services it is hosted by MS and unrelated to the GitHub site so in this sense "MS doesn't offer access to Github" through their site.

    Still I wanted to tell that it doesn't mean that you can't access a project created at https://github.com from Visual Studio.

    Sorry, I wanted to clear up a possible confusion and it seems I just made it worse ;-)

    @Mike thanks

    TFS is version control system and GIT too. when we insert any project from VS IDE to online TFS then it ask to choose TFS or GIT. so what is the difference between TFS and GIT.

    when people prefer GIT as their version control instead of TFS. give me some idea. thanks
