Microsoft-owned GitHub Acquires Collaboration Tool Firm

Microsoft announced GitHub’s acquisition in June 2018 for $7.5 billion

To review codes, Microsoft-owned GitHub has acquired a US-based start-up called Pull Panda that makes collaboration tools for software teams at an undisclosed amount.

Following the acquisition, Pull Panda’s products – Pull Reminders, Pull Analytics and Pull Assigner – would now be available for free as part of GitHub Marketplace application.

“We’re excited to share some big news… We’ve acquired Pull Panda to help teams create more efficient and effective code review workflows on GitHub,” the Microsoft-owned company wrote in a blog-post on Monday.

The acquisition would support automatic reminders, real-time insight into the effectiveness of a team’s process, make data-driven improvements and automatically distribute code across teams.

In future, GitHub plans to eventually internally integrate Pull Panda’s features with its own software.
