Although the official announcement of the deal is coming, it became clear that Microsoft has acquired the hosting platform GitHub. GitHub is a vast code bank that has become popular with developers and companies hosting their projects, documentation, and other code.

As a “repository,” GitHub is backed by many large technology companies, including Apple, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. It was firs valued for $2 billion in 2015, but it’s not clear for exactly how much was acquired by Microsoft.

Since Satya Nadella was named as CEO, Microsoft has invested dynamically in open source technologies such as PowerShell, Visual Studio Code, and JavaScript engine. After acquisition, we will probably see even greater integration between Microsoft’s code development tools and the GitHub service.

Still, the official announcement of the deal and its details, as well as the giant’s future plans for the platform and its integration with its functionality, are still expected. Post from: GizBrain
