GitHub is the largest code host with over 10.9 million repositories. It recently announced via a blog post that a new service called GitHub Education will support students as they pick up computer science skills.
According to GitHub’s education liaison, John Britton, it will now offer free “micro” accounts for students and teachers, free “organization” accounts for classrooms (helping to manage group workflow) and 25% off for other educational uses. Micro accounts cost those who aren’t students just $7 per month. Github claims that more than 1,200 classrooms and 70,000 students have signed up already.
