Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub is now official  ↦

New GitHub CEO, Nat Friedman:

I’m thrilled to share that the Microsoft acquisition of GitHub is complete. 🎉 Monday is my first day as CEO. Millions of people rely on GitHub every day, and I am honored by the opportunity to lead this company.

He goes on to share the two principles for GitHub and these three objectives that are at the top of his mind moving forward:

  1. Ensuring GitHub is the best place to run productive communities and teams
  2. Making GitHub accessible to more developers around the world
  3. Reliability, security, and performance

Their headline “Pull request successfully merged. Starting build…” is priceless! So hacker.

These points from Nat are so crucial for the community…

GitHub will operate independently as a community, platform, and business.

GitHub will retain its product philosophy.

Ultimately, my job is to make GitHub better for you.
