GitHub's Free Users Will Now Be Able to Make Private Repositories

GitHub makes private repositories available for free

Microsoft obviously needed to add some restrictions to make paid GitHub accounts more attractive, but making private repositories free will be a positive change for small developers wanting to collaborate on private projects.

This announcement comes courtesy of TheNextWeb.com, which admits it broke Microsoft's embargo on the news a day early.

The Packers Have Reportedly Made A Head Coaching Decision
He takes over for Mike McCarthy , who was sacked during the season following a stunning home loss to Arizona on December 2. The early expectation is that Pettine stays in Green Bay, though Lafleur will make a firm call when it's official.

Fortunately, that's no longer the case, as GitHub today announced it was giving users of its free plan access to unlimited private repositories. These projects are typically open-source not because their authors have any particular desire to share them with the world but because GitHub gave them no choice: free GitHub accounts could only create public repositories. While that cost does add up over the year, it isn't too challenging to put together $7 a month if you have a job.

For those using GitHub in enterprise environments, the service's Business Cloud and Enterprise services are now unified in one offering.

Nevertheless, Aquaman is slated to become the very first billion-dollar film in the Extended Universe. According to Forbes, Aquaman now projects a domestic box office collection of $238.32 million.

With GitHub Free, developers can now host as many private coding projects they want for free. 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.

In a further sign of potential parent company synergy, GitHub said devs can now create pull requests directly from GitHub Pull Requests, an extension for Microsoft Visual Studio Code, the Windows maker's Electron-based cross-platform code editor.

Melissa McCarthy Secretly Passed Out Ham and Cheese Sandwiches During Golden Globes
McCarthy added that next year she meant to bring hot dogs, although that seems like a logistically more hard endeavour. It remains unclear how exactly McCarthy smuggled the sandwiches into the event.

Overall these changes should help GitHub continue to develop a healthy ecosystem of users. Unlimited private repositories were already available for free via GitHub's Education program to students and teachers, by the way.
