Future of GitHub and the Impact of Data Hosting
Future of GitHub: Last June, Microsoft acquired one of the largest version control service providers, Github. What impact does this have and what is the future of such services? What can be inferred from such a decision? To really understand the question at hand, you need to focus on what you are saving. Data is essential to all aspects of development, including how it is manipulated, where it is stored, and to whom valuable information is entrusted. Who has access to it, what law protects it from unintended use, and what projects can deviate from it? Information is so important to us that we have developed a mechanism to strictly control how we collaborate and store it to keep it secure.
Data hosting services are nothing new. During the years before Github, Rapidshare, Megaupload, and other companies all provided data hosting services. The services they offer are essentially different, but they all use free and paid-to-host paradigms to process and store end-user data. These free plans were the first step toward a snowman slowly guiding the industry to adapt to a variety of new approaches to free and paid repository services.
To show or not to show?
GitHub always had a free storage option, but previously their free tier was limited to public repositories where anyone could view and fork a copy of their hard work. For developers who want to dig into font control first, the most affordable option was to publish their code. Even after embarking on the first developer job, I don’t want to take advantage of the training as anyone, or the current employer, can see and guess when moving forward or working on a side project. There may be cases. Companies that had a free Github account for source code on a serious business project in the past used to be as trustworthy as a $ 3 bill.
After all, trade was almost inevitable, whether Google, Apple, or another company in the conglomerate could buy Github. So what does it mean that the world’s largest software company bought the world’s largest collaborative code repository? For starters, this means that Microsoft now has access to around 28 million developer and organization repositories. Second, Github suddenly becomes the standard for future companies wanting to get started with source control services. Developers will never settle for less than the minimum amount available for free. Also, from our point of view, freelance software developers have nothing else to do.
That being said, these platforms will continue to move towards a variety of pricing plans, keeping new and exciting plans going forward. Now instead of hassling developers and logistics, we offer a variety of tools alongside the hosting services we provide. On the one hand, we expect more companies to adhere to these new plans, so we are curious what we will see in the coming years.
