@mansellan What does that hold for the future of GitHub and all the code on it? Sure, they don't own the code, but I could see them deciding, "Nah... this OSS stuff isn't going to fly, we're shutting down the service."

@FreeMan sounds like a good way to piss off the entire world.
 
It does. I wouldn't put it past 'em.
 
@FreeMan Github as a platform (and service) is independent of whether Microsoft wants to participate in FOSS
or to be more specific: it's profitable without that commitment
 
Interesting. How do they make their money then?
 
@Vogel612 that's true, but I still wouldn't put it past MS to decide that OSS isn't "valuable" because they don't want to participate in it anymore and that, therefore, nobody should (at least with their support).
Basically, I'm pretty cynical when it comes to MS
 
@this private repositories, enterprise instances and support around that
@FreeMan that would imply selling Github
 
2:21 PM
@FreeMan I would think that at least some bigwigs would know better because they can't really sell their products if there's no community to sell it to.
@Vogel612 IINM, private repo are free. I kind of assumed that the paid services were a very small % of GH
 
@this not if you're a company (or to be more exact: Organization)
Also the ci features are paid, as is large-file storage extensions
 
@Vogel612 That was my point. Selling or simply shutting it down. I wouldn't put it past them </cynic>
 
the code on github can be easily hosted elsewhere. It's downright trivial
bitbucket, gitlab, sourceforge (bleh), ...
there's a vast array of options out there
the more interesting part is actually wikis, issues, PR metadata and the whole idea of discussions
 
isn't gitlab a github service?
 
no
gitlab is a standalone company
bitbucket basically is to github like Atlassian is to Microsoft
and Gitlab is to Github like Gitlab is to Microsoft
;D
 
2:29 PM
@FreeMan TBH I'd be surprised if they went that far. Again, you need a community to sell your products to. I am not aware of any pariahs who are also successful businessmen.... (no, Indian convenience store owners don't count. They have families)
 
</cynically screaming into the wind>
I've been overly cynical about a lot of things lately. Apologies.

Q: How to incorporate Excel VBA class collection into interface/factory method?

SquirrelBaitI've been using class modules for almost a year, and I'm just now comfortable with them. Now I'm trying to incorporate factory methods into data extraction from workbook tables. I found some great guides on the topic here, here, and here, but I'm unsure where to incorporate a collection of the cl...
