Function of Git Hub

Hi,
I am a teacher working with a Non-Profit School.
I would like to develop my own web application where I can maintain students record information such as students details, reports and attendance, and other pertaining file related to students. Its merely transfering all manual filing to e-filing concept.

My question is, will GitHub provide me a platform to learn? I still don’t get the idea the objective of Git Hub? I don’t mind about the subscription fees, but what I’m looking for is to learn the knowledge (web programming) in GitHub and develop my own web application and if I have issues, I need assistance. I do have some knowledge with basic programming.

Any input on this please?

Thanks

GitHub is source code hosting with additional tools for software project management, like issue tracker, scrum/kanban boards, pull requests, code review wikis, analytics and static page hosting. Its used by people to share their applications, frameworks or libraries code with others.

GitHub may help you learn in a sense that it likely contains thousands of examples of web apps that implement functionality that you are after, but thats all.
