On the second day of its annual developers' conference 'Build 2016' here, Microsoft announced the new free development tools which include new cloud services, developer tools and productivity extensions, to help every developer more easily scale their apps for every platform and reach the
largest possible number of customers.
"Microsoft is the only cloud vendor that supports the diverse needs of every organisation and developer from core infrastructure services to platform services and tools to software-as-a-service for any language, across any platform," Microsoft's Executive Vice President of the Cloud and
Enterprise Group Scott Guthrie said.
India's developer community of over a million is among the largest in the world for Microsoft. "With 30 regions worldwide, more than every major cloud provider combined, Azure's massive scale means developers and businesses alike can focus on creating the next generation of amazing applications, not their underlying cloud infrastructure. This makes our cloud the de facto choice for enterprises of today and tomorrow," Guthrie said.
