Microsoft announced a new partnership to bring GitHub’s Enterprise tools to Azure during its Build developer conference today.

GitHub recently began supporting Amazon Web Services in an update November of last year, so a move to support Azure as well isn’t a huge surprise.

Additionally, developers will now be able to open GitHub repositories right from Visual Studio or easily load the code into Visual Studio right from a button right on GitHub’s website.
