GitHub makes private repositories available for free

The change allows coders to create an unlimited number of private projects with up to three participants at no cost.

GitHub has announced GitHub Free, which gives users unlimited private repositories for free - a move that brings it into tighter competition with rivals like Atlassian BitBucket or Gitlab. But now those are free if you have three collaborators or fewer. GitHub Enterprise is meant to work in conjunction with GitHub Connect, the code biz's way to bridge the open source world and more guarded corporate development through identity, search, and contribution tracking systems.

It's been a little more than months since GitHub was officially acquired by Microsoft, and the Redmond giant is expected to make an important announcement regarding free accounts tomorrow, January 8. This is a reasonable compromise that ensures Microsoft can see profit from GitHub for commercial projects while extending a great benefit to those who could use the help the most. And if you were a regular user who isn't willing to pay $7 a month for private repositories, you wouldn't have any options than to pay for the subscription service.


Microsoft bought GitHub to win the hearts and minds of software developers, and this could be an important step towards that goal. Instead of offering GitHub Enterprise Cloud and GitHub Enterprise Service as separate services, Microsoft is rolling them into one: GitHub Enterprise.

GitHub revealed today that it's making a couple of big changes that should be good news for developers of all stripes. The new Enterprise Cloud plan will let organizations and businesses access cloud and self-hosted GitHub configurations for a single per-user price.
