re: What's your opinion on Microsoft's GitHub Acquisition? VIEW POST


It will push us "Enterprise IT" .NET developers from TFS to GitHub, sooner or later.

One of the biggest trends I've seen in working with Microsoft development tools over many years is them moving on to the next big shiny object, leaving everyone's project plans in disarray. That's why when you walk into a long time Microsoft corporate IT team you're likely to find everything from VB6 desktop apps to Angular/React web apps and everything in between. If you're really lucky you'll encounter multiple Visual SourceSafe repositories, local TFS repositories, cloud based TFS and now GitHub.


For TFVC the writing has been on the wall for years. VSTS has supported Git for a long time now and I don’t think there’s any denying it’s a superior VCS.
