In an increasingly connected world, the "New Normal" is for applications to integrate with one or more cloud services. Whether you are creating web applications or native client applications, Visual Studio makes it easier to discover and consume these services in your existing applications. This video provides an overview of the options for connecting to services in Visual Studio and walkthrough the experience of connecting an existing application to a service.
This week at WinHEC, we were able to talk to silicon, hardware, and device partners about the advances we are making in Windows 10 to simplify building Windows devices, drivers, and apps. This talk covered the key advances we disclosed this week, which include:
The Windows 10 device platform allows IHVs to develop a single universal driver that can be deployed across all Windows 10 device families (e.g. PCs, phones, IoT).
The Windows 10 device platform provides new tools and techniques to reduce the cost and complexity of imaging and manufacturing Windows 10 devices.
In-market and new hardware development boards will support Windows 10 and Windows universal drivers.
Windows 10 will include a new IoT edition for small devices that is tuned to run Windows universal apps and drivers and is royalty free to makers and device builders.
