Research survey: Impact of Microsoft Acquisition of GitHub

(Natnaree Asavaseri) #1

Dear contributors,

I am Natnaree Asavaseri and currently undertaking a research internship at Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan. As a part of my research, I am analyzing the impact of Microsoft’s acquisition of GitHub.

I would like to conduct a survey to understand how developers perceive the Microsoft’s acquisition of GitHub, especially from contributors to Linux distributions and BSD families. So please consider voicing your opinion by allowing us up to 5 minutes to complete our short survey.

We would like to remind you that participation in this survey is completely voluntary and your identity is hidden for anonymity. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
