Microsoft Completes $7.5B Github Acquisition - [briefly]
05:54 AM EDT - Oct,27 2018 - post a comment

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, and former Xamarin CEO Nat Friedman will start his job as head of the company today. Microsoft claims that Github will remain independent, and retain its current philosophy, but that isn't quelling everyone's fears. Back when the acquisition was announced, Gitlab experienced a massive traffic spike, as many developers feared the worst and decided to clone projects to alternative platforms. GitHub will operate independently as a community, platform, and business. This means that GitHub will retain its developer-first values, distinctive spirit, and open extensibility. We will always support developers in their choice of any language, license, tool, platform, or cloud. GitHub will retain its product philosophy. We love GitHub because of the deep care and thoughtfulness that goes into every facet of the developer's experience. I understand and respect this, and know that we will continue to build tasteful, snappy, polished tools that developers love.
