New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on September 06, 2022) follows:

The world of software development offers many tools and utilities that help boost the productivity of developers. One of those tools is GitHub.

GitHub is a platform designed to be a collaborative community of developers. Millions of people use GitHub daily as part of their work.

GitHub allows developers to upload their projects. The code of the projects must be open source, so anyone has access to them.

This means that developers have millions of open source projects available to support their own projects. The platform also allows the community to collaborate on the development of current projects.

However, currently all GitHub users are unable to access the platform as its servers are down or not working.

GitHub servers down or not working

According to multiple reports, GitHub servers are not working properly at the moment. The issue is preventing millions of developers from accessing community projects or their own projects.


figured it was in its early stages, haha 🙂 thank you! sounds good. (i posted an issue about it too, just in case – but then github went down just now… 😅) glad you find it useful! look forward to s3s for splatoon 3! 😊

Wow super annoying, i had a huge deployment failure causing an emberassing situation with my team. #GithubDown

Is down currently (“No server is currently available to service your request.”).
GitHub Status page shows that everything is fine. I think we need an additional GitHub-Status for GitHub-Status.

Platforms like Down Detector also reflect the multiple reports on server issues from the developer community.


There is no official acknowledgment of the issue from the GitHub team yet. We will update this story as events unfold.
