Microsoft Philippines Partners with Exist Global on Open Source

Lora Bentley

Microsoft's mixed messages continue. Just a day after the company publicly decried the "hidden costs" of open source with a press release/customer testimonial, Microsoft Philipines announced it will be investing further in open source development via its Open Source Interoperability Lab. reported Thursday that Microsoft Philippines has partnered with Exist Global, an open source software engineering company led by Winston Damarillo. The company becomes the second in the Philippines to ink such a deal and will focus on "developing plugins for NPanday, a project to integrate the Java-based Apache Maven with Microsoft's .NET development environments." Exist will also join in the NFixture project, a .NET open source project centered around data integrity and testing, the story says.


Damarillo says the partnership will facilitate "collaboration and innovation on existing platforms, which helps customers become better as they get flexibility with their software environments."
