This is our second edition of the Open Source Weekly, a roundup of recent open source related community news, product announcements, popular docs, and demos from around Microsoft.
This will be far from an exhaustive list of everything open source going on around the company. After all, we have more than 16,000 people across Microsoft working on open source projects. Instead, we hope this is will be an informative recap of relevant open source highlights to keep you in-the-know.
Anything you’d like to see more or less of? Let us know in the comments.
