GitHub Actions is a free computing worker! ๐Ÿ’• I use it for site performance monitoring.

GitHub repository can also be used to store anything. You can store json and access it through API as a simple database. Or upload a file and share a raw link for download (I think it is faster than Google Drive). Also GitHub Pages for static site hosting is great.โค๏ธ

I have thought about storing project-related files in Github (like mp3 or png), tho generally it's not considered the best practice as GitHub was not initially designed for that ๐Ÿ˜‰Plus there are limitations for upload sizes, etc ๐Ÿ˜‰
