(2014-03-17) Github Horvath Mess

GitHub co-founder Chris Wanstrath announced in a blog post Sunday that an unidentified co-founder and an engineer has been put on leave as part of an investigation into allegations of gender-based “harassment” at the open-source coding platform. On Friday, Julie Ann Horvath, a prominent engineer who spearheaded women’s initiatives at GitHub, took to Twitter to write about the harassment and intimidation she claimed she suffered from leadership at the company. Horvath was not immediately reachable for further comment.
