Opening the Build 2018 developer conference in May, Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella said: “Twelve months after I started talking about the intelligent edge, it is now everywhere. Developers are pushing platform advances.”
Nadella said computers were being embedded everywhere. “The era of the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge is upon us. These advancements create incredible developer opportunity, and also come with a responsibility to ensure the technology we build is trusted and benefits all,” he said.
Under Nadella, Microsoft has become a more open company, and is now a big supporter of open source and the Linux operating system.
