Microsoft is shutting down CodePlex
Microsoft corporate vice president Brian Harry announced that they are shutting down CodePlex, its service for hosting repositories of open source software. CodePlex is Microsoft's free open source project hosting site. You can create projects to share with the world, collaborate with others on their projects, and download open source software. "As of this post, we've disabled the ability to create new CodePlex projects," Harry wrote. "In October, we'll set CodePlex to read-only, before shutting it down completely on December 15th, 2017." Microsoft claims that most open source projects have moved to GitHub and so should you.
