Setup Visual Studio for GitHub integration
Microsoft's Satya Nadella, insisted that this "Acquisition will empower developers, accelerate GitHub’s growth and advance Microsoft services with new audiences", and that has been mostly true, a year later.
So, now that GitHub is a First class citizen in the Microsoft Kingdom, it is well fitted to share some lights on how to integrate it with Visual Studio.
The first thing to do is to hop over to the https://visualstudio.github.com/ website and download the extension. It does require Windows and Visual Studio 2015 or newer.
When you install Visual Studio, select the option to Customize the install and be sure to check the GitHub Extension for Visual Studio check box. It's that easy.
If you already install Visual Studio without adding the extension? No worries, download it now.
