I wonder if it's possible to combine Visual Studio Team Services and/or TFS with a GitHub repository. We think both products have their own advantages and would like to work on one repo within our company.

The reason to use VSTS / TFS is the integration in Visual Studio for Work Items.

    What do you perceive you're getting from github that you're not from VSTS and git ? Assuming git across the board using both is not really a huge issue apart from discussions of how to keep it all neatly synchronised. – Murph Jan 20 '16 at 9:46
  • Old question, new answer: Since Microsoft purchased GitHub, using Visual Studio with a git repo is a reality. Directions on getting started with Git and VSTS: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/git/… – Elsa Jul 31 '18 at 18:43
  • @Elsa that’s not since MS bought github. VSTS has supported Git for years. Also, re the OP, if you’re using VSTS for work items, there’s no real reason to pay for Github too. Github’s big difference from VSTS is how it handles issue tracking. – RubberDuck Aug 2 '18 at 23:18
