Back to Github Free

Back to Github Free

Now that GitHub is owned by Microsoft, free accounts can have unlimited private repositories. Before the acquisition, this feature was only available to "Pro" accounts. That, and the fact that I like to support companies which products I use, was the main factor for me to have a paid account.

I am no full-time developer, and I do not need all the collaboration features GitHub offers. So I just cancelled my subscription.

And now that GitHub is a part of Microsoft, one of the most valuable companies in the world, I dont feel bad not supporting them with my money. 😁
