Microsoft has just announced Visual Studio Community 2013.  It’s pretty much a full copy of Visual Studio, which retails for well over £300, and you can use it to create applications for Windows, Android and iOS.

The deal is that it’s available for use by individuals, non-profit companies and teams of fewer than 5 developers, which covers an awful lot of amateur developers, clubs, schools, etc. Here’s the blurb from the page:

Q: Who can use Visual Studio Community?
A: Here’s how individual developers can use Visual Studio Community:
  • Any individual developer can use Visual Studio Community to create their own free or paid apps.
Here’s how Visual Studio Community can be used in organizations:
  • An unlimited number of users within an organization can use Visual Studio Community for the following scenarios: in a classroom learning environment, for academic research, or for contributing to open source projects.
  • For all other usage scenarios: In non-enterprise organizations, up to 5 users can use Visual Studio Community. In enterprise organizations (meaning those with >250 PCs or > $1MM in annual revenue), no use is permitted beyond the open source, academic research, and classroom learning environment scenarios described above.

Build, test, scale and more all from one place. – this week, Mozilla’s released Firefox Developer Edition: a browser packed with developer-friendly features like WebIDE, Valence for cross-browser debugging, Responsive Design View and more.

WebIDE is the replacement for App Manager and lets you build fully functioning applications from your browser or Firefox OS device. Responsive Design View lets you see your app or website as you resize it for different platforms and Valence lets you debug for different browsers, including Chrome and Safari. Other handy tools we’ve seen before like Page Inspector, Web Console, and Web Audio Editor are included as well.
