Microsoft + GitHub = Empowering Developers



In this day, we announced an agreement to acquire GitHub, the world’s leading software development platform. I want to share what this acquisition will mean for our industry and for developers.
The era of the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge is upon us. Computing is becoming embedded in the world, with every part of our daily life and work and every aspect of our society and economy being transformed by digital technology.
Developers are the builders of this new era, writing the world’s code. And GitHub is their home.
As every industry – from precision medicine to precision agriculture, from personalized education to personalized banking – is being impacted by technology, the developer community will only grow in numbers and importance. Developer workflows will drive and influence business processes and functions across the organization – from marketing, sales and service, to IT and HR. And value creation and growth across every industry will increasingly be determined by the choices developers make.
In short, developers will be at the center of solving the world’s most pressing challenges. However, the real power comes when every developer can create together, collaborate, share code and build on each other’s work. In all walks of life, we see the power of communities, and this is true for software development and developers.
That is why we are so excited about today’s announcement. More than 28 million developers already collaborate on GitHub, and it is home to more than 85 million code repositories used by people in nearly every country. From the largest corporations to the smallest startups, GitHub is the destination for developers to learn, share and work together to create software. It’s a destination for Microsoft too. We are the most active organization on GitHub, with more than 2 million “commits,” or updates, made to projects.
Microsoft has been a developer-focused company from the very first product we created to the platforms and tools we offer today. Building technology so that others can build technology is core to our mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

Microsoft is also committed to empowering communities, from the world’s professionals to IT professionals to gamers. We believe in the power of communities to achieve much more than what their members can do on their own. It’s our ability to work together that helps our dreams become reality, and we are dedicated to cultivating and growing communities to do just that.
And Microsoft is all-in on open source. We have been on a journey with open source, and today we are active in the open source ecosystem, we contribute to open source projects, and some of our most vibrant developer tools and frameworks are open source. When it comes to our commitment to open source, judge us by the actions we have taken in the recent past, our actions today, and in the future.
Given all of this, together with GitHub, we see three clear opportunities ahead.
First, we will empower developers at every stage of the development lifecycle – from ideation to collaboration to deployment to the cloud. Going forward, GitHub will remain an open platform, which any developer can plug into and extend. 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 on any cloud and any device.
Second, we will accelerate enterprise developers’ use of GitHub, with our direct sales and partner channels and access to Microsoft’s global cloud infrastructure and services.
Finally, we will bring Microsoft’s developer tools and services to new audiences.
Most importantly, we recognize the responsibility we take on with this agreement. We are committed to being stewards of the GitHub community, which will retain its developer-first ethos, operate independently and remain an open platform. We will always listen to developer feedback and invest in both fundamentals and new capabilities.
Once the acquisition closes later this year, GitHub will be led by CEO Nat Friedman, an open source veteran and founder of Xamarin, who will continue to report to Microsoft Cloud + AI Group Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie; GitHub CEO and Co-Founder Chris Wanstrath will be a technical fellow at Microsoft, also reporting to Scott. You can see how Chris, Nat and I envision the opportunity ahead in this public presentation.
Together we will continue to advance GitHub as a platform loved by developers and trusted by organizations.

【2020 COSCUP】Vue 作者尤雨溪分享 現場座無虛席

  【2020 COSCUP】Vue 作者尤雨溪分享 現場座無虛席 2020 COSCUP 第二天的重頭戲兼開場為主辦單位邀請到 Vue 作者—尤雨溪與現場會眾分享即將正式上線的 Vue 3 與個人開源心得。現場座無虛席並且與會眾問答的來回問答十分精彩,文中也邀請到台灣最大的 Vue 社群「Vue.js Taiwan 台灣」的 Kuro Hsu 做 Vue 的簡單懶人包。 COSCUP 第二天的開場為主辦單位邀請非常多次重量級來賓 Vue 作者尤雨溪(Evan You),而今年雖因為疫情關係,Evan 無法來到現場,但恰好搭配著 Vue 3 釋出的熱度,一早就湧進大量人潮。 目前 COSCUP 主辦單位已完整的將影片釋出到網路上囉!有興趣的網友們可點網址觀看:https://youtu.be/Z-i7VY-ez2Q COSCUP 工作人員也邀請到了台灣最大的 Vue 社群「Vue.js Taiwan 台灣」的 Kuro Hsu 為我們摘錄本次演講與 Vue 3 最精華與懶人包的內容(註:演講時間為 2020 年 8 月 2 日,可能與最新版本有不同,以最新釋出的版本消息為主唷!),若想討論 Vue 的技術與內容的話,也可以加入 「Vue.js Taiwan 台灣」 與他們一起討論喔!(社團連結: https://www.facebook.com/groups/vuejs.tw) --- 小編問題(一):7/18 release Vue 3(註:此為 Release Candidate、或稱 RC 版本,非正式版)和以往最大的改變(三個): Kuro 回答: Vue.js 以往版本 (v1、v2) 的核心底層是以 JavaScript 來開發,而型別檢測系統在 Vue 2 以來一直都有,底層是透過 Flow.js 來實作。 尤雨溪在演講中提及,首先是在近年的前端領域裡,使用 TypeScript 來開發的人越來越多, 而這點對 Vue 2.x 來說對 TS 的支援顯然是不足的;再來是 Flow.js 原本是 facebook 團隊開發用來作為檢查工具,並不是新的程式語言或超集語言, 而 Vue 3.0 底層改用 TypeScript 除了同樣能做到原本 Flow.js 的功能,並且在經過編輯器的整合 (如 VSCode) 甚至可以做到程式碼的即時檢查以及自動補完的提示
