Microsoft joins the Eclipse Foundation

This morning at EclipseCon, we announced that we are joining the Eclipse Foundation to further our goals of helping developers build applications regardless of the technology stack choices they make.  At the same time, we announced the new open source project for Team Explorer Everywhere to enable anyone to contribute to creating a great Eclipse experience for Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio Team Services.  Read more about it in Peter Bright’s article.

This adds to a great deal of engagement already with the OSS community, including: our numerous Application Insights SDKs, our IntelliJ plugin for TFS and VS Team Services, and much, much more.

I’m looking forward to continuing to deepen our relationship with the Java and Eclipse communities.
