We make it easy to get started. All you need to build compelling apps for phones, tablets and PCs is in Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows (with Update 2 RC). Included are universal app templates, a full-featured code editor, a powerful debugger, emulators, rich language support, and more, all ready to use in production.
We have dozens of code samples to get you up and running fast. They’re based on Visual Studio’s new universal app templates, letting you build for both Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1.
We’ll help you get your Windows Store app ready for a successful launch through one of our worldwide community events or by connecting you with a Windows platform expert. When you’re ready, submit your completed app in our contest for a chance at one of hundreds of prizes.
Sign up to publish apps to the Windows Store and the Windows Phone Store.
