The Latest Developments in the Microsoft Developer Stack and Resources

The Latest Developments in the Microsoft Developer Stack and Resources

It looks like the Microsoft Developer Team has begun using a weekly summary to highlight all of the development news the team shares on their Build Apps for Windows website and on social media.

The new resource laced weekly summary has now appeared over the last two weeks so it may be starting to develop a pattern and we will see if that continues tomorrow with a third edition.

In the mean time, here are some of the highlights in these last two editions.
