Microsoft opens its novice developer tool to the Windows 10 operating system
Microsoft opens the doors of Windows 10 to all developers on Sunday with the latest version of its App Studio, the tool designed in Redmond to facilitate the creation of software even for the least competent in the matter. The latest update allows you to create functional apps for the latest version of Windows without having to write a single line of code: these will work both on smartphones and on PCs and tablets, adapting their layout dynamically to the different screen formats.
You won't be able to create revolutionary software that can change the world – the features that can be implemented are rather spartan if you compare with what a real programmer can do. Yet the ability to build an app without the need to install complex development tools or learn tempting programming languages: everything is done in a guided way and through a simple browser window. At the end you have a working program on Windows smartphones and PCs (but also on Raspberry Pi and on future gadgets and wearables with Windows IoT operating system) which – as Microsoft hopes – you can decide to publish on the platform Store.
