Microsoft today announced the launch of Windows Dev Center Partner Program. This program is targeted towards middleware providers and provide them with devices, software, co-marketing, event support, and more. Unity, MVVM Light toolkit, Json.Net are some of the examples of middleware. If you are a developer of middleware offerings, you apply today to qualify for these benefits. If you are a Windows app developer looking for third party middleware available to accelerate your app or game development for Windows, you can check Microsoft’s new partner directory, where you’ll find an extensive and growing list of some of the most compelling middleware partners targeting Windows today.
At Microsoft we’re more focused than ever on creating the most compelling, accessible, powerful, and overall enjoyable app development platform, and we recognize the critical role middleware plays in such an ecosystem. This new program is designed to promote that goal.
