Visual Studio Express and Windows Home Server

Dan Fernandez is the lead product manager for Visual Studio Express. He just blogged about developing tools and applications for Windows Home Server using Visual Studio.


As I mentioned in my Channel9 video I’m super excited that WHS is going to enable geeks, makers, hobbyists, or whatever you want to call them to build fun and exciting things for their homes. Of course, WHS will also allow “professionals” to build products that extend the platform, but Dan is absolutely right in saying that there is complete overlap in the definition of the “Sam” persona we defined as we built Windows Home Server and the target market for Visual Studio Express.

As he mentions this is another example of the Hobbyist Renaissance at Microsoft.
