Microsoft opened an account on Github

    Microsoft has set up an account on Github , where it will publish the source code for some of its programs.

    Little has been published so far: TypeScript web application development tool that extends JavaScript, and sample TypeScript programs . But let's hope this is just the beginning.

    The description of the company on Github looks like an apology for past mistakes: "Microsoft has changed as a company and is becoming more open in the way we work with others."
