GitHub makes private repositories available for free

GitHub makes private repositories available for free”

According to The Next Web, users with free GitHub accounts will be able to create an unlimited number of private repositories, though these will be limited to three collaborators a piece.

Microsoft to date has maintained GitHub's previous strategy of limiting the ability to create private repositories that aren't visible to the public and are privately shared to paying customers.

Users of the GitHub Free plan can now create an unlimited amount of private repositories, with a simple caveat: all of the repos created using this GitHub plan will only be able to support up to three collaborators.

I also wonder what ubiquitous private repositories will mean for Github's culture of self-exhibition and sharing.

Microsoft bought GitHub to win the hearts and minds of software developers, and this could be an important step towards that goal.

As such, GitHub represented a trade-off: you could use GitHub's services for free, but you had to share. To date, private repositories on the service required users to pay $7 a month for a personal developer account.

Nat Friedman, CEO of GitHub, writes on Twitter that since its acquisition, GitHub has shipped over 125 improvements. The change in strategy could give Microsoft a better competitive position against rival services like GitLab and BitBucket.

GitHub Enterprise is GitHub's new unified product for Enterprise Cloud (formerly GitHub Business Cloud) and Enterprise Server (formerly GitHub Enterprise). Yes, enterprises can now access both cloud and server solution at one per-seat price.

Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub was a major play for the hearts and minds of software developers, everywhere.
