Developer Centers and Destinations
MSDN Developer Centers and Resource Centers pull together content and resources around specific products and technologies. They connect you to code samples, community sites, technical articles and documentation, upcoming events, and much more. Each Developer Center gives you a clear road map to understanding and working with your technology of choice.
Windows Features Rich, intuitive, Windows features for your applications.
Windows provides innovative features that will light up your applications and delight your customers. Explore the resources below to start learning and using them today.
Performance is a fundamental metric representing system responsiveness and productivity. It has been directly tied to customer satisfaction and having bad performance is usually an adoption blocker for a product. This dev center will help you get on board with Windows Performance Tools that let you analyze performance aspects of Windows systems, from a low powered mobile uPC to an 128-way server and beyond.
Silverlight is a powerful development platform for creating engaging, interactive user experiences for Web, desktop, and mobile applications when online or offline.
Windows 7 Desktop Integration with Internet Explorer 9
Windows Internet Explorer 9 introduces pinned sites, a feature with which you can integrate your websites with the Windows 7 desktop. A pinned site is more than just a shortcut, however. With very little effort, developers can access features of the Windows 7 taskbar from their websites.
Cloud Development - Cloud computing refers to computers and applications that run remotely and are accessed over the Internet. In cloud computing, virtual machines run in large data centers and replace physical PCs and servers. By aggregating the computing needs of many users within a single center, economies of scale are achieved that result in significant benefits for everyone. Some of these benefits include lower power utilization, simpler setup and maintenance, and easier upgrades to capacity and performance. Many applications can run unchanged as you redeploy them from local desktops or servers to the cloud. Some applications do need to be updated to adapt them to running remotely in a more distributed computing environment, and some entirely new types of applications are being enabled by cloud computing.
