GitHub Makes Core Features Free For All Developer Teams


Microsoft-owned software hosting site GitHub has made all of its core features available for free to all users.

Until now, you had to subscribe to one of GitHub’s paid plans in case your organization wished to use it for private development. “But every developer on earth should have access to GitHub. Price shouldn’t be a barrier,” GitHub CEO, Nat Friedman wrote in a blog post.

  • All of the core GitHub features are now free for everyone.
  • As part of the announcement, GitHub is making available private repositories with unlimited collaborators to all GitHub accounts.
  • With this move, teams can now manage their work together in one place: CI/CD, project management, code review, packages, and more.
  • For advanced features (like code owners), enterprise features (like SAML), or personalized support, teams can upgrade to one of their paid plans.
  • GitHub has also slashed the price of its paid Team plan from $9 per user/month to $4 per user/month, effective immediately.
