Essential Online Services Now Available To .NET Developers
.NET Software Developers can now get everything they need to build and deploy apps on any platform. With state-of-the-art tools, the power of the cloud, training, and support, it’s the most comprehensive free developer program ever.
Visual Studio Dev Essentials is a new, free program that brings together everything developers need to create applications on any device or operating system including Visual Studio Community and Visual Studio Code, and the free tier of Visual Studio Team Services. Dev Essentials adds priority forum support, training services from Pluralsight, Wintellect, and Xamarin, and—something that many have asked for—monthly credits to use in Azure, which will be coming in early 2016 (anytime now).
With the changing face of Software Development and with the need to support multiple platforms, this new Developer Support program by Microsoft will open many doors for Developers around the world to acquire the skills and access to the right cloud services to help them to build great apps.
