  • Microsoft announced Wednesday it would acquire an Austin-based software product design and development studio called XOXCO.
  • XOXCO is known for Howdy, a bot for the popular Slack work chat app that helps schedule meetings, as well as Botkit, which provides development tools for the GitHub code-sharing service.
  • Microsoft has acquired several other AI startups this year, including Semantic Machines, Bonsai, and Lobe.
  • Microsoft also announced updates to its AI platform, including a new technology called Cognitive Services Containers.
CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey referred to as Frankenstein Jenkins or, more snappily, “Jenkinsteins” as teams add plug-ins to create a “gigantic, fragile master that falls apart”.
