Microsoft announced on Monday that it was acquiring GitHub. And that’s all the Internet could talk about for a few days. TNS Managing Editor Joab Jackson wrote a piece for us summarizing the acquisition and some of that initial Internet reaction. And Scott Fulton examined a Plan B for developers who may be nervous about projects pulling out of GitHub and leaving a trail of broken dependencies.
And now that we’ve had some time to sit with it a bit we are starting to understand some of the other, longer term implications that this deal will have for developers.

There is no “normal” for a microservices environment. And if a groundbreaking November 2016 white paper, produced by a team of six researchers from the University of Messina, the U.K.’s Newcastle University, and IBM Research, is to be taken at face value, perhaps such a state of equilibrium may never be attained. Every data center, the researchers write, has unique operating requirements. Once microservices are deployed there, the configurations they require become not only unique, but baked into their respective systems.

The ideal of a technology ecosystem is that the people who benefit most from it — presumably, the customers — share the fruits of their labor with the producers who maintain this system. Both the suppliers and the demanders benefit each other, and in so doing, exchange roles from time to time. It’s the phenomenon we first saw with the Apple II in the late 1970s — the first community-driven economy devoted to a commercial computing product.
