New reports out of Redmond this weekend have Microsoft set to purchase the popular coding site GitHub. Bloomberg is citing “people familiar with the matter,” stating that the deal could be announced as early as tomorrow.

 

The new story follows similar reports late last week of discussions between the two parties. The deal certainly makes sense for Microsoft, as the software giant continues to actively court developers. As for GitHub, the company is said to have been “impressed” by Satya Nadella, who has actively courted coders and coding initiatives since taking the reins at the company, back in 2014.

 

"The opportunity for developers to have broad impact on all parts of society has never been greater," Nadella told the crowd at his address during last year’s Build. "But with this opportunity comes enormous responsibility.”

Microsoft likes closing down sites just so they can push their own programming, though this could be different, time will tell.
