In June, Mi­crosoft an­nounced it was ac­quir­ing the soft­ware-de­vel­op­ment plat­form GitHub, co­founded by Wanstrath in 2007, for $7.5 bil­lion in stock. As part of the deal, he stepped down as CEO to be­come a “tech­ni­cal fel­low” at Mi­crosoft. Wanstrath, 33 (left), who dropped out of the Univer­sity of Cincin­nati in 2005, was GitHub’s largest in­di­vid­ual share­holder.
