Con Will be discounted on January 25th 2016
Google has recently announced that they will be discounting the Google Code service. Because of the blooming of services such as GitHub and BitBucket, Google themselves decided to host their open source projects on Github as many other developers did, moving from Google Code to other hosts for their open source projects, mainly GitHub and BitBucket. This left only abusive and spam projects hosted on their servers, which forced Google to discount their service as they see that there's no more place and need for Google Code.
