Microsoft Buys GitHub

On Monday, the news came out that Microsoft acquired GitHub for 7.5 Billion dollars. As with most things, there are those who think it is great news and those who think the news spells doom for GitHub.

I’m in the former camp. I think this will ultimately be great. Microsoft has said they will continue to have GitHub run as its own entity just like they did with LinkedIn and Minecraft.

You can read both GitHub’s announcement as well as Microsoft’s announcement.

Or you can hear me summarize them while playing some Forza 6 below.

Tell me what you think!
