How good or bad is that if google takes over Atlassian? Google has their own products that do what Atlassian does, expect for jira maybe.

    If it’s my guess, just how google acquired Kaggle, it’ll be an acquisition of talent, not of product. If they take all the DevOp engineers from Atlasssian they will be able to provide additional quality support for GCP, which from my understanding was a tad lacking as of late because as GCP has been scaling they’ve been taking in lower quality of talent and beat out by AWS and Azure. Fact check me someone

      Not sure about GCP lake of talent but as ex Atlassian i can say as of Atlas SRE and devops, they have bested google and Netflix. Atlassians are OPS gurus. But when it comes to scale they sucked.

      Spend 30B Buy DevOps talent(or any talent really)? You got to be kidding me...That is not how business operates.

      No...and talent hire deals are much smaller, like a few hundred millions at most...only recent acqusition (sort of talent hire) is Salesforce bought Quip.

    Does Google have the same interview for people who will join the company after acquiring?) Will level be the same?

      Acquiring a company takes years to be fully integrated and start use the same processes

    Are you high, good sir? Did Sundar decree that "Well if Microsoft can buy GitHub, we will buy the next best thing, Bitbucket!" This does not make any sense.
