GitHub Holiday Message

  • The pandemic brought unprecedented challenges, revolutionizing the way our customers and open source community build software.

    We have watched our employees step up to ensure that GitHub continues to deliver the experience and innovation that our customers expect from us—while also balancing the unique complexities of remote work, children, health, and more. We recognize that our employees are our greatest asset, so to give back to our employees who give so much, we will be taking company wide wellbeing days July 5-9, as well as six Fridays in July and August.

    GitHub is committed to providing our customers with high-quality customer support and will have staff available to assist should an issue arise, however you may experience a delayed response during these dates. To ensure a seamless developer experience, we recommend that you refrain from upgrading between June 28 and July 9.
