I heard that Microsoft is starting to put the squeeze now that acquisition has completed. Any truth to this?

    Ugh I have an onsite there next week. Is this true? Will it effect eng?

    • ^at least tell them the rule for next time. It's a verb versus a noun. Effect is the latter

      @perelman Actually ‘effect’ can also be used as a verb and ‘affect’ can also be used as a noun. It depends on the context.

    • Well if you want to be correct 99.9% of time listen to me. If you want to get hung up in minutia and never achieve greatness listen to these nerds.

      Effect is a useful verb. Perelman is low IQ

      Github guy is dillusional. There is already plans to make the Azure dev ops powered by Github. Github won't be operating independently forever.

      “Azure dev ops powered by GitHub”. Yep, I know about this and it’s an integration. It’s the same as saying Heroku had taken over github because there’s a marketplace app. Try agin

      Love it @Atlnlay. It’s impossible to deny a rumor. Or argue with folks who refuse to make a strong factual argument. We can argue possibilities all day. But only time will tell.

      All companies lay people off after acquisition.
      Guess what Oracle did with all the Java people (despite running everything on Java).

    Microsoft has left LinkedIn largely alone. So when github peeps say its not true, most likely its not true.

      Linked is a lot more valuable and a great brand for msft. Github has lot of competition in that space and dev productivity is not core to msft business so they won't 8nves run it infinitely.
