The Microsoft Build conference is quite mind blowing this year.
It seems that Win32 apps will be accepted into Windows Store, but too early to tell if it means VS apps only – or apps from other tools, such as RAD Studio, as well. Windows Store apps will be deployed in a virtualized sandbox – sort of – which means that when you uninstall, no crap is left behind on disk, nor in Registry. How this will work with stuff like addons – remains to be seen.
Their new approach to cross platform is a game changer. If you got the time, you need to watch this. VS can now compile Android/Java apps and iOS Objective-C apps into Windows Apps.
Oh, and the new Universal Apps are crazy cool.
Time to add to the skillset, for sure!
Don’t worry, though. I still love Delphi 🙂
P.S. HoloLens is also starting to look super sexy. All in all, MS suddenly is back as the most vibrant of our platform vendors, outdoing Google, Apple and others in functional coolness.
