Announcing the availability of Azure App Service

In a mobile-first, cloud-first world, companies are using apps to connect with and better engage their customers, partners, and employees anywhere, and on any device. They are relying on developers to build those apps with increasing speed –that can connect to popular services and on-premises systems and auto scale as the business needs. Today, I’m excited to announce Azure App Service, a unique new service which helps developers deliver cross-platform, cloud-connected apps faster than ever before.

Windows 10 developer tooling preview now available to Windows Insiders

Three weeks ago, at Mobile World Congress, we had the opportunity to share with you a first look at the Windows 10 universal app platform. Today I’m excited to announce that we are making the first technical preview of the Windows 10 developer tooling available to Windows Insiders. However, I’d like to point out that this is a preview. Our goal with this release is to give you the opportunity to experiment with the cool new platform capabilities while we continue working to finish Windows 10.


Node.js Tools 1.0 for Visual Studio

Node.js Tools 1.0 for Visual Studio (NTVS) is now available for download! NTVS is a free, open source extension for Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2013 that turns Visual Studio into a Node.js IDE. NTVS 1.0 supports the free Visual Studio Community and Visual Studio Express for Web editions, as well as Visual Studio Professional and higher. Node.js is a platform for building fast, scalable applications using JavaScript. It’s making its way just about everywhere – from servers, to Internet of Things devices, to desktop applications, to who knows what next? And now, with Node.js support in Visual Studio, it’s easier than ever before to develop Node.js applications.


Develop apps for the Microsoft Band with the SDK Developer Preview

Microsoft has opened the gates for third-party developers to extend their existing apps or to build apps for the Microsoft Band, a cross-platform smart band that provides fitness and productivity benefits to empower you to live healthier and be more productive. And, with the recently launched iOS SDK, developers have even more opportunities to develop across all platforms. Please check out the great work by Xamarin, which was able to simultaneously ship the iOS SDK along with Xamarin bindings for Android and iOS.
