MSDN Platforms

MSDN Platforms gives IT Operations staff and developers access to a wide range of resources such as software, services, support, and training that help your organization succeed. Access to past, present, and future software provides IT staff with everything they need to create, deploy, and manage great applications targeting your preferred platforms and devices, including first-class tooling for Windows, iOS, Android, and Linux. And subscribers can connect, collaborate and deliver on time with the help of Microsoft’s ALM solution (Team Foundation Server or Visual Studio Team Services).
