GitHub just went to shit

Today, Microsoft completed their acquisition of the Git hosting service Github. Microsoft payed a cool $7.5 billion for the company, which they announced back in June. Github's co-founder and former CEO, Chris Wanstrath, has already stepped down.

The only thing I know about GitHub is that they are popular to host software projects. What kind of income stream do they have that made them worth 7.5 billion?
