Developers are essential to the world we live in today, and the work you do is critical to powering organizations in every industry. Every developer and development team brings new ideas and innovation. Our ambition with the Microsoft Cloud and Azure is to be the platform for all of this innovation to really empower the entire community as they build what comes next.

 

Microsoft was founded as a developer tools company, and developers remain at the very center of our mission. Today, we have the most used and beloved developer tools with Visual Studio, .NET, and GitHub. We offer a trusted and comprehensive platform to build amazing apps and solutions that help enable people and organizations across the planet to achieve more.

 

Over 95 percent of the world’s largest companies today are choosing Microsoft Azure to run their business, in addition to thousands of smaller and mid-size innovative organizations as well. The NBA uses Azure and AI capabilities to turn billions of in-game data points into customizable content for its fans. Stonehenge Technology Labs has increased developer velocity through its fast-growing commerce enhancement software, STOPWATCH, using Azure, Live Share, and Visual Studio.

 

With the Microsoft Cloud and Azure, we meet you where you are and make it easy for you to start your cloud-native journey—from anywhere. That means developers can use their favorite languages, open-source frameworks, and tools to code and deploy to the cloud and the edge, collaborating in a secure way and integrating different components in no time with low-code solutions.

 

Supporting all of this, here are some of the latest developments we’ll talk about at Microsoft Build this week. You can also view the Scaling cloud-native apps and accelerating app modernization session to learn more about these announcements.
