Big news from yesterday.
Github (valued at $2,000,000,000) was purchased by Microsoft for just under $8,000,000,000.
Lots of chatter on Twitter about the acquisition.
Much satirical and negative:
The news initiated a tangible upswing in general interest of a competing cloud version control software: GitLab
And the volume traffic of migrating repos is very real:
There’s even a new hashtag #movingtogitlab for folks considering migrating their content from one platform to another just as a jerk knee reaction to the news of the acquisition.
