And after yesterday’s cross-platform gift for developers, Microsoft continues to show how it wants to transform itself into a developer-friendly brand. The Redmond giant has now announced Github Enterprise for Azure, and a co-working community space for developers, named Reactor.
Github Enterprise is the code repository’s paid, enterprise solution for companies to develop software collaboratively, in a uniform environment, leveraging all the features of GitHub. GitHub’s enterprise software has been used by major names, including SAP and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab among others.
Thus, similar to the way SAP and NASA JPL have been using GitHub for Enterprise, Azure too would be going on the same path.
Another interesting announcement which Microsoft made at its keynote today, was the announcement of a community working space by the name of Reactor. And Microsoft motto behind this ? “Microsoft loves developers !” And yea, that pretty much shows.

So Reactor is a co-working space for developers, where in they can simply come, sit together, discuss and hack. The space will be opening up in San Francisco, though no further details have been released by Microsoft.
You may probably see more of these ‘Reactor’ co-working spaces in other places too.
