Software originating from Microsoft looks great on Google, Microsoft's top manager, Wednesday.
Visual Studio Code is available for Linux and MacOS, as well as Windows. It has over 4.5 million monthly active users after the release in 201
At the same time, November announced the publication of cloud market leader Amazon Web Services that it is working on software that will make it easier to work with AWS resources from inside the Visual Studio code.
Capossela said that Just as Microsoft cares about the business's adoption of its offerings, it remains focused on consumers and education. "It's … a business that's important for you to have software developers who teach computer science in high school using VSCode, "said Capossela.
Technology has become something Microsoft leaders point out when they want to demonstrate the company's willingness to work across platforms.
"VSCode is one of the most interesting products we have built as a company," said Microsoft's CFO, Amy Hood, at the Deutsche Bank Technology Conference in September.
After the Visual Studio Code came out, Microsoft took its proprietary SQL Server database software for Linux. And this year, it bought GitHub, the home of Visual Studio Code and many other open source projects. It joined the Linux-centric Open Invention Network, and chose to put Chromium, open source technology behind Google Chrome at the core of the Edge browser, and contribute to Chromium.
"I think for me, this was the year when people really began to see that open source is something that is important to the company," Capossela said Wednesday. 19659003] WATCH: Microsoft CEO at the GitHub Acquisition
