    GitHub is now free - core GitHub features are now free for everyone

    Posted , 351 views, 0 comments

    GitHub is an amazing service, but up until now you had to pay a fee to have private repositories. That has now changed and GitHub just announced that making private repositories with unlimited collaborators available to all GitHub accounts. All of the core GitHub features are now free for everyone.

    Not only are GitHub providing private repositories with unlimited collaborators at no cost, they also lower the cost for their pro plans with more than half. It has never been a better time to get into GitHub, so if you are not already there now may be a good time to try it out.

    The details

    • We introduced a new GitHub Free plan for teams with unlimited collaborators in private repositories, 2,000 GitHub Actions minutes/month, and GitHub Community Support.
    • You now have unlimited collaborators in private repositories as part of your GitHub Free plan.
    • Monthly pricing for our Pro plan has been reduced from $7/month to $4/month.
    • Monthly pricing for our paid Team plan has been reduced from $9/user to $4/user.
    • Actions minutes and Packages storage will continue to be free for all public repositories.

    This is great for smaller companies that want to use GitHub for project work, but don't want to pay for the private repositories function. Smaller teams can now also start using GitHub as it is far more affordable with the new pricing that is almost 50% lower.

    Overall I think this is a great update from gitHub and it's probably the one I have been waiting for since I joined back in 2011.

      One of the biggest cause for complicated workflows and custom fields is the fact that Jira has never been a deployment tool, but the teams need the visibility of deploys. With this latest update to Jira Software Cloud we see improvements in this field with no less than four new features. DevOps teams or not, this will make life easier for everyone.
      While there are several add-ons for Jira Software Cloud that will tie together repositories with Jira, this is now a standard feature in Jira. That means that it can be used with no additional cost (except for the Premium features if you don't have Premium of course), which lowers the entry point substantially. Hopefully this will mean the end of operations based statuses in the workflow and custom fields to hold release data.
      Code in Jira
      This feature allows you to connect your repo to Jira so you can visually see the repos in a new tab in your project called Code. Doing so if fairly easy, especially if you use Bitbucket, but adding Github for example takes only a few minutes. The biggest benefit of this feature for me however is that you will see the repo information in the Jira issue itself. This provide a lot of information to the viewer on where this issue has been committed.

       
      Deployments in Jira
      This is where things get interesting.  With Code in Jira above you can see where your code packages are and their status. With Deployments, you can see where those packages also have been delivered to. This provides a very nice overview of where your code currently is available, which is what most people want to know when they try to build this into their workflows or work views.
       
      Premium Features
      The last two features are only available for the Premium version of Jira Software Cloud. Normally I don't like to have features split between a standard and a more expensive version, but these two features are all about measuring which I think is fine to have as a bonus if you need the more expensive version.
      Deployment Frequency

       
      Cycle Time

       
      My Thoughts
      This is a very good addition to Jira Software Cloud that have been needed for a long time. While I think the Premium features is mostly for numbers people and not really for the daily work I think this still is a solid addition. I would like to see the deployment information on the issues and it needs a connection with Insight, so I can connect deploys to my assets.
      There is a lot of potential here and I look forward to seeing this taking further in the future.
