A Github repository is a collaborative virtual platform that allows for sharing, tracking, and versioning of various resources, particularly code. There are many features that can be leveraged, including a way to track progress through “issues” (a bit like a ticketing system). For communities that are already in the habit of using it, Github may be a very good option to use alongside your virtual event. A hackathon is an example of an event that would likely leverage Github or a similar tool.
Example: Data Umbrella sprints repo
