Cross Platform Development with Microsoft's Visual Studio

Posted on 5.21.2014

Microsoft is thinking cross-platform development is the way to go these days and has released a preview of Apache Cordova support in Visual Studio. 

For those unfamiliar with Cordova, it's a toolkit for building iOS, Android and Windows applications using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Developers will now be able to build apps for these platforms simultaneously.

The integration, available now as a preview release, includes templates both for regular JavaScript and Microsoft's JavaScript derivative TypeScript. Projects can be built, deployed, and debugged from within Visual Studio.
