After releasing the Android update, a Kernel code is released for developers from the brand-end for further work on builds and ROMs. GitHub is the most popular hosting and code sharing platform for developers. One of the main reasons why this platform is immensely famous is its implementation of version-control systems, that helps in keeping track of changes and collaborative projects. But all this while, GitHub limited features and divided the availability of the features into different packages for users and developers to purchase and use according to their needs.
But the latest announcement has been the ringing in the ears of all the users and developers. GitHub officials have announced a huge change in the package, pricing, and features, and that is all this article is about!
GitHub implements “Freemium”-
The latest announcement from GitHub says that the platform will provide free unlimited private repositories with unlimited collaborators for all which all extends teams that use the service for commercial projects, and also includes up to 2,000 minutes per month of free access to GitHub Actions. Check the official statement quoted by the CEO of GitHub, Mr. Nat Friedman.
“We’re switching GitHub from a pay-for-privacy model to pay-for-features, what’s typically called freemium — you may have heard of it. The way I think about it is we want every developer and team on earth to be able to use GitHub for their development, whether it’s private or public development. It’s a fundamental change to the business architecture of GitHub.
That’s the thing we can think about internally — the thing that everyone else can think about is: they can just use GitHub now, for whatever reason. If you’re starting a startup or if you’re a team inside of a big company and you just want to use GitHub — no credit card required, no budget required — you can just set your team up.”
The officials have also firmly mentioned that the change has been a part of the plan for very long, which has nothing to do with the outbreak of the pandemic. Even when the lockdown ends, these changes will be permanent for GitHub users.
