Microsoft’s plan for GitHub: “Make GitHub better at being GitHub” | Ars Technica
Reddit AMA with Nat Friedman doesn't really reveal a whole lot.
As part of Microsoft's $7.5 billion purchase of cloud source code repository GitHub, the company is installing a new CEO. Once the deal closes (which is expected to happen later this year), out will go GitHub co-founder Chris Wanstrath and in will come Nat Friedman. Friedman is the former CEO of Xamarin, the cross-platform .NET implementation that Microsoft bought in 2016.
Friedman brings solid open-source bona fides: core parts of the Xamarin stack were open source, and Friedman's previous company, Ximian, was created to develop the open-source GNOME project. His appointment should quell many of the fears that open-source developers have about the takeover. To engage with the community further, Friedman today did a Reddit AMA to answer questions about the acquisition.

The Cost of Developers – Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Yesterday saw three developer-related announcements, two from Apple, and one from Microsoft. The former came as part of Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference keynote:
The iOS App Store, which turns 10 next month, serves 500 million weekly visitors, and as of later this week will have earned developers over $100 billion.
Sometime next year developers will be able to write apps for the Mac using iOS user interface frameworks (known as UIKit).
Microsoft, meanwhile, for the second time in three years, outshone Apple’s keynote with a massive acquisition. From the company’s press release:
Microsoft Corp. on Monday announced it has reached an agreement to acquire GitHub, the world’s leading software development platform where more than 28 million developers learn, share and collaborate to create the future. Together, the two companies will empower developers to achieve more at every stage of the development lifecycle, accelerate enterprise use of GitHub, and bring Microsoft’s developer tools and services to new audiences.

Everyone complaining about Microsoft buying GitHub needs to offer a better solution | Ars Technica
GitHub needed a buyer, and there aren't too many options.
Microsoft is buying GitHub for $7.5 billion dollars, and predictably, there's a developer backlash.
GitHub, though notionally a for-profit company, has become an essential, integral part of the open-source community. GitHub offers free hosting for open-source projects and has risen to become the premiere service for collaborative, open-source development: the authoritative source repository for many of these projects, with GitHub's own particular pull-request-based workflow becoming a de facto standard approach for taking code contributions.
The fear is that Microsoft is hostile to open source and will do something to GitHub (though exactly what isn't clear) to undermine the open-source projects that depend on it. Comments here at Ars, as well as on Slashdot, Reddit and Hacker News, suggest not any specific concerns but a widespread lack of trust, at least among certain developers, of Microsoft's behavior, motives, and future plans for the service.
These feelings may have been justified in the past but seem much less so today.

Microsoft snaps up GitHub for $7.5 billion | Ars Technica
Biggest open source hosting service joins biggest proprietary software company.
Microsoft has reached an agreement to buy GitHub, the source repository and collaboration platform, in a deal worth $7.5 billion. The all-stock deal is expected to close by the end of the year, subject to regulatory approval in the US and EU.
Decade-old GitHub is built on Git, the open source version control software originally written by Linux creator Linus Torvalds. Git is a distributed version control system: each developer has their own repository that they make changes to, and these changes can be propagated between repositories to share those changes. GitHub provides a repository hosting service: a place to put those repositories so that other developers can readily access them. Since its inception, it has become a mainstay of the open source world, with countless projects—including Microsoft projects such as the Visual Studio Code text editor and the .NET runtime—using GitHub repositories as a place to publish their code to the world and coordinate collaborative development. In total, some 28 million developers use GitHub, and there are 85 million code repositories.

Microsoft Purchasing GitHub for 7.5 Billion in Microsoft Stock
Microsoft announced this morning that they are purchasing the source-code repository site GitHub for $7.5 billion USD in Microsoft stock. While rumors have been circulating since Friday, today is the first official confirmation that the acquisition is taking place.
According to Microsoft's announcement, the purchase still needs to go through regulatory review and the normal closing process, but it is expected to close by the end of of the year. After the closing takes place, Microsoft Corporate Vice President and Xamarin founder Nat Friedman will take over the role of GitHub's CEO and GitHub's current CEO, Chris Wanstrath, will become a Microsoft technical fellow and work on other software initiatives.
“Microsoft is a developer-first company, and by joining forces with GitHub we strengthen our commitment to developer freedom, openness and innovation,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. “We recognize the community responsibility we take on with this agreement and will do our best work to empower every developer to build, innovate and solve the world’s most pressing challenges.”

GitLab Sees Huge Traffic Spike After News of Microsoft Buying GitHub
Code hosting service GitLab has seen a massive traffic spike after news broke over the weekend that Microsoft has agreed to acquire GitHub, the world's largest code repository.
According to Grafana, GitLab's statistics portal, thousands of projects and code repositories are being imported every hour. These numbers are only expected to grow as Monday comes around and most developers get back to work.
The number one fear expressed by companies and developers is that by buying GitHub Microsoft now gets full access to the millions of private projects that companies are currently hosting through GitHub's premium service.

Confirmed—Microsoft Buys GitHub For $7.5 Billion
Here's the biggest news of the week—Microsoft has reportedly acquired GitHub for $7.5 billion.
For those unaware, GitHub is a popular code repository hosting service that allows developers to host their projects, documentation, and code in the cloud using the popular Git source management system, invented in 2005 by Linux founder Linus Torvalds.
GitHub is used by many developers and big tech companies including Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and IBM to store their corporate code and privately collaborate on software, but Microsoft is one of the top contributors to the web-hosting service.
