As a Microsoft developer, you've built some great solutions for your customers. You've solved business problems and made the world better. But the Microsoft Developer Platform as you know it is no more. It's better. It's faster. It's open. And it's cross platform. In this keynote come get insight from Amanda Silver, Partner Director of Program Management, into the wonderful world of changes where Microsoft has shipped .NET Core, NuGet, ASP.NET, TypeScript, Xamarin and a cross platform editor in VS Code through an open development process. This will lead to a great new release of Visual Studio this fall to make building any app on any platform as easy as it's been to build a .NET apps on Windows.
The new release of Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 dramatically expands the ways in which developers can build applications and games, by adding several new programming models, and also expanding the application model to support a broader set of developer scenarios. We explore these in depth and give you the information you need to get started building applications that leverage these features today.
Go is a general-purpose language that bridges the gap between efficient statically typed languages and productive dynamic language. But it's not just the language that makes Go special – Go has broad and consistent standard libraries and powerful but simple tools. One of Go's key design goals is code adaptability; that it should be easy to take a simple design and build upon it in a clean and natural way. In this talk we'll go through the analysis we did and takeways that took us to use golang.
