For ages I have used and enjoyed source code management with Git and GitHub over the last year. With the GitHub plans it is only useful to a point because to host private repositories you need to pay for a subscription. Where as with Bitbucket, “Unlimited private/public Git code hosting, totally free”. I was surprised by how much I like and enjoy their product offering, it really took me back with is simplicity and attractiveness. Don’t get me wrong I still love GitHub and any project that I want to be publicly available will be going up there. But I cannot complain with free Git hosting, now can I.

I thoroughly enjoyed setting up my Git Repos last night, it took no time at all! I take my hat off to the guys who develop Bitbucket they have made a quality App. It is quite simple to set up and what you need is where you want it in a very attractive way. Its so easy to get going, obviously I have no problem with the free service and boy is it effective! GitHub has its place for my joint projects but Bitbucket is where I’ll be keeping my private code.
