GitHub announced Wednesday that Google and Microsoft veteran Shanku Niyogi will join the company as its new senior vice president of product to lead product strategy.




Niyogi spent over 18 years at Microsoft, and he watched Microsoft on its journey towards embracing open source, as evidenced by its $7.5 billion acquisition of GitHub last October.




Niyogi himself has led open source projects at Microsoft, such as Visual Studio Code and TypeScript.




As the new product head, Niyogi hopes to work to make GitHub a better community and build features that make the platform more welcoming and inclusive.



When Shanku Niyogi first encountered GitHub, he was working at Microsoft in its early days of warming up to open source. Now, he's joining GitHub to become its new senior vice president of product, GitHub announced on Wednesday.
Niyogi, who has spent over two decades in the software industry, will be responsible for GitHub’s product roadmap, including product strategy, management, and design. Before GitHub, he worked as the director of product management for the Google Cloud Platform, where he led teams in building developer tools.
"When I think of GitHub as an audience of 31 million developers and growing, that is a huge and diverse audience," Niyogi told Business Insider. "We have to be open and we have to be inclusive in how we build products for them."
