GitHub, April 21
GitHub, the source code repository owned by Microsoft, saw multiple outages near the end of April.
GitHub services first struggled for more than an hour on April 21. The next day, there were two back-to-back outages again stalling the work of developers who rely on the platform, and then another affecting multiple GitHub services for more than an hour the following day as well.
Git Operations, API requests, pull requests and other functionality that software engineers rely on as part of their day-to-day work were degraded. Developers went to Twitter to criticize Microsoft for a lack of transparency as the rolling outages continued through the week.
