Today Github has announced private repo’s are now unlimited for upgraded accounts, for organisations the starter package was 10 private repos for $25 a month, this has been upgraded to $9 a month after the first 5 users still at $25 a month but with unlimited repo’s.
Personal accounts also have unlimited repo’s but $7 a month, whilst there are services like bitbucket that offer free private repo’s I’ve never taken to them in the same way I do with Github. Personally I prefer the Github so this is really good news!

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.
In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.
Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
