what is github?

what is github?  why is it so imp to know

GitHub, at its core, is a software code hosting and collaboration tool with a community of over 28 million people (as of June of 2018) using it to build software, share information, collaborate on projects, offer support, and much more. In addition, we (GitHub, the company) create and support development tools such as Atom, Electron, and Desktop. As for why it is important to know about, that would depend on where you’re coming from and what you’re expecting to be doing with it. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you heard about GitHub?
