Neowin reports the layoffs at Microsoft continue. It started with 18,000 job cuts in June 2014, another 2,100 a couple of months later, and a further 7,800 jobs in the phone division in 2015. A couple of months ago, the software giant fired 2,300 ex-Nokia employees as well as 1,000 others, and now there's a smaller round of layoffs that affects the entire Microsoft Press editorial team:
The Microsoft Press department had been responsible for publishing content on Microsoft's technology and software - since 1984 - which currently includes Windows 10, Windows Server, Office 365, and application development and deployment. The individuals offered technical aid and expertise to casual and enterprise users, professionals, developers and students.
The work performed by this editorial team will now likely be outsourced, probably in association with Pearson, who already handles the distribution of Microsoft Press titles.
