Posted November 08, 2018 09:57:03 If you’ve ever wondered how to use a development network like the one used by Microsoft, Google and Oracle to create applications for iOS and Android, now you know.
The new Microsoft Developer Network lets developers and businesses connect directly from any iOS or Android device to a Microsoft Azure cloud-based development environment.
The Microsoft Azure development environment is the cloud-native version of Microsoft Azure, where developers, IT and operations teams can build, test and deploy their apps.
Developers can connect directly to the cloud, run apps from Microsoft Azure and have their applications tested and deployed within 24 hours of creating them.
The cloud-backed development environment helps create a seamless integration with Microsoft applications.
Microsoft is now the first major technology company to offer this capability.
“Developers have never had the ability to work with a single source of data across a variety of platforms, and we think this is an exciting opportunity to make that experience easier and more seamless for them,” Microsoft Azure product manager Ryan Burdick said.
“We’re also excited to help our customers create cloud-enabled applications that will benefit from a cloud-driven environment.”
Microsoft is also working to add more developer networks across other technologies, including cloud-focused services for mobile and cloud-as-a-service.
A number of the major players in the mobile app industry are working on their own developer networks, too, and Google, Facebook and Apple have a few in place.
“There are quite a few companies out there that have a really strong set of developer networks that are designed to give developers a way to connect with other developers and developers in other industries,” Burdack said.
Microsoft Azure has a large list of developer network partners across various industries and industries with a focus on mobile apps, such as healthcare, manufacturing and retail.
It also has partnerships with a number of major technology companies, including Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, IBM and Oracle.
Microsoft recently announced that it is launching a new developer network to help support developers and business owners, which is designed to be a cloud partner for businesses and organizations across all industries.
“Microsoft Azure development enables businesses to easily share their code and services across their environments, and provides them with the flexibility and agility they need to focus on the customer,” said Mark Hahn, vice president of product management at Microsoft.
“The developer network allows companies to work directly with Microsoft Azure while also providing a convenient platform for testing and deploying their apps on Microsoft Azure.”

Microsoft also launched a cloud computing service to help businesses with cloud-hosted development tools.
The service, called Azure Automation Services, helps businesses run cloud-side applications across their IT infrastructure and is available on Microsoft platforms such as Windows Server and Azure.
The Azure Automations service can run on Linux, Mac and Windows Server.

The company also announced a new cloud-wide developer network that enables businesses with multiple applications to work on them and also collaborate across multiple Azure environments.
“Azure Automation is an industry first, allowing customers to work across all Azure environments and share code, APIs and services,” said Steve Tufnel, vice-president of technology, Azure.
“This enables teams to easily build new applications for Azure and share them with partners.”
Microsoft also recently added another developer network called Azure Cloud Services.
Developers who are part of this new network will be able to build, deploy and manage applications for the Azure cloud service.
Microsoft’s Azure Developer Network is open to all enterprises with a cloud infrastructure.
Developers and businesses are also able to connect to Azure cloud services through their own apps and services, but the company is working to make it easier for businesses to access the service.
“With Azure, companies can deploy, run and manage their apps in their own virtual environments on Azure,” said Hahn.
“In addition, this allows companies the flexibility to focus more on the business of building, testing and managing applications in Azure.

For businesses that are looking to scale their applications on Azure, we are pleased to announce that they can get access to developer accounts through Azure Cloud,” Hahn said.

Microsoft has more than 4 million Azure users.
