Unlimited private repositories now available to free GitHub users

GitHub's Free Users Will Now Be Able to Make Private Repositories GitHub to give users of its free plan access to unlimited private repositories

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.

Microsoft announced a change in GitHub pricing today, and it's great for anyone learning to code.

If you're using a free account on GitHub, you're now able to create and share private software projects.

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. 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. 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. Anyone who does need more than three collaborators can continue to pay $7 a month for GitHub Pro. Additionally, GitHub is launching GitHub Enterprise, the new unified product for Enterprise Cloud and Enterprise Server. Now that people have the option to hide this behind a flawless shroud, will this harm GitHub's culture of shameless openness and candidness?

The biggest news here for most is the launch of free private repositories.

GitHub also announced that it's consolidated its existing products for the business under the GitHub Enterprise brand, which it will now sell as one subscription. Based on customer feedback, unlimited free private repositories was the top-requested feature.
