At Made we’ve used GitHub for years for all of our public and open source projects. That has always been free, and the experience has always been great. We have been hosting our private repositories with another service for a really long time. However, the user experience, speed and feature set of GitHub that we get with our public repositories has finally led us to make the jump, and to migrate all of our repositories across to GitHub with a paid plan.
At Made we’re very keen to have our deployments run as safely, quickly and as easily as possible. When you’ve worked on a new feature for a project you want to get it in the hands of the client and end-user at the earliest possibility.
