As you know, Microsoft announced to acquire Github on June 2018. Today, Nat Friedman, the Microsoft’s GitHub CEO commented in a blog post announcing the Microsoft acquisition of GitHub is complete.

On the blog, Nat repeating again about the two principle for Github as below:

  • 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.

GitHub will retain its developer-first ethos and will operate independently to provide an open platform for all developers in all industries. Developers will continue to be able to use the programming languages, tools and operating systems of their choice for their projects — and will still be able to deploy their code to any operating system, any cloud, and anydevice.

GitHub is a large code repository that is a popular resource for developers and companies for hosting projects, documentation, and code. Apple, Amazon, Google, and many other big tech companies use GitHub.
