At its TechEd conference today, Microsoft announced the next step in its "mobile first, cloud first" strategy with a preview of Apache Cordova support in Visual Studio. Cordova is a toolkit for building apps for iOS, Android, and Windows using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. With the Cordova integration, Visual Studio will directly support building apps for all of these platforms.

This new thing Microsoft's got going on takes a bit of getting used to. I hope it sticks for once, because this company has changed direction more often than a politician in need of campaign funding.

Or it is subtly "enhanced" so that it is hard to work on the resulting code outside Visual Studio?


It is probably the default suite right now, but I indeed wouldn't put it past them to add "enhancements" in the future.

This has been Microsoft's modus operandi for decades and old habits are hard to overcome.
