Microsoft builds tools for any developer, any app, any platform.
This was the simple message that Scott Guthrie, Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise Executive Vice President, kicked off his keynote with at the annual Connect(); developer event.
Guthrie detailed significant steps Microsoft is taking to empower the ecosystem by giving developers greater choice in the tools they use — including joining the Linux Foundation as a Platinum Member to better collaborate with the open source community, welcoming Google to the independent .NET Foundation, and working with Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. to enable .NET developers to build apps for more than 50 million Samsung devices worldwide.
“We want to help developers achieve more and capitalise on the industry’s shift toward cloud-first and mobile-first experiences using the tools and platforms of their choice“ Guthrie said. “By collaborating with the community to provide open, flexible and intelligent tools and cloud services, we’re helping every developer deliver unprecedented levels of innovation.”
