Last week CloudShare joined the 2014 Build Conference in San Francisco. If you have never been to the conference, I recommend it. It is a great way for developers to find out what is new in the Microsoft Dev Tools world, meet with Peers to solve real world problems, and get up to speed on modern day trends. Like one of this years themes, DevOps.
In my last post in the CloudShare Community Blog I talked about how to upgrade from Visual Studio 2013 Preview to Visual 2013 Release Candidate (VS 2013 RC) in a CloudShare Environment.

As developers, last week we had a great surprise coming from Microsoft: Visual Studio 2013 Release Candidate (VS 2013 RC) was publicly released together with Team Foundation Server 2013 RC, .NET Framework 4.5.1 RC, and related developer tools technologies. All the details about what’s new in the VS 2013 RC can be found in this great Soma Segar’s blog entry where you can find detailed information about what’s new in RC and the improvements and additions between VS 2013 Preview and RC release.

As you know SharePoint 2013 introduces a new development model, known as the App Model, that allows you to create and deploy applications for SharePoint On-Premise and SharePoint Online in Office 365. If you want to know more about how to build applications for SharePoint, I recommend you to visit the Build apps for Office and SharePoint portal created by Microsoft. There you can find a lot of useful information and resources about this new development model, how to build apps, and so on.
