GitHub - Best Developer Tools for Startups

GitHub is a web-based code repository that’s often used as a project management tool for engineers. It’s a code hosting service, meaning it stores code on the cloud to facilitate collaboration and revision control. It boasts a long list of integrations, issue tracking and its own API to make collaboration as smooth as possible. Github Issues, used by both developers and non-technical folks for workflow organization, enables anyone on your team to submit an issue, assign it as a task, label it for context, and create important milestones and deadlines.

How startups use GitHub?

GitHub customers cover the spectrum, from small seed-stage startups to large growth companies. The most popular code repository in the world, GitHub offers an unlimited number of contributors for each repository and has become a fixture of the developer community--at a reasonable price, to boot. It’s a great option for any company that needs to collaborate on code, regardless of size or stage.

How much does GitHub cost?

GitHub has five pricing plans, all of which offer unlimited members and unlimited public repositories and charges only for private repositories. The free plan includes no private repositories (which means they’re public). The Bronze plan, at $25/month, includes 10 private repositories; Silver, for $50/month, includes 20; Gold includes 50 for $100/month; and Platinum, at $200/month, includes 125. GitHub also charges for data packs that upgrade your storage and bandwidth by 50GB each for $5/month. GitHub also has an enterprise package with additional features and integrations which costs $2,500/year for every 10 developer accounts (as an example, 10 developer accounts would costs $2,500/year, and both 11 and 19 developer accounts would cost $5,000/year.
