Microsoft acquired Github today for $7.5 billion. Github was founded in 2008. It stores and manages code in repositories using Git, a distributed version control software developed by Linus Torvalds. It has 28 million users and 85 million projects. Github public repositories are free. Private repositories start at $7 per month for developers. For teams, it starts at $9 per user/month and up to $21 per user/month. If you like to run your own Git repository, check out GitLab. Just install it on a Linux server.
