Official Now Microsoft Acquiring git hub 7.5 billion

Microsoft announced on June 4, 2018, that it has reached an agreement to acquire GitHub. It’s a pretty good news for the open source world and this smart move of Microsoft is celebrated everywhere.

GitHub’s is the world’s leading platform where more than 28 millions of developers come together to learn, share and collaborate. It is said that together Microsoft and GitHub will empower the developers to attain more and more at every stage of the development lifecycle, by bringing Microsoft development tools & services and accelerate enterprise use of GitHub.

The most awaited comment by Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft has a lot to say about the acquisition, he said, "Microsoft is a developer-first company, and by joining forces with GitHub, we strengthen our commitment to developer freedom, openness, and innovation”. Further added, “We recognize the community response that 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.”

A person familiar with the deal between Microsoft and GitHub said that, the main reason why GitHub preferred Microsoft to sell their company solely because they were impressed with Nadella.

Though Microsoft has acquired GitHub, still the company will operate independently, under the supervision of Nat Friedman, the former CEO of Xamarin and a current Microsoft developer-tools executive. To maintain the trust of users on GitHub, it will continue to support the operating systems, programming languages, and tools of the user’s choice.

Though there is a mixed reaction by the developers on this acquisition, we must wait and watch; what Microsoft has to do with GitHub before making any comments.
