Introducing Push to User for Visual Studio App Center

We made some recent changes to Visual Studio App Center that enable our customers to associate app users with their data in App Center. App Center customers can use this user association to send push notifications to specific users through App Center Push. In this article, I’ll explain how it all works.

Introducing Visual Studio App Center Auth

For the past few months, the team has been working to develop a seamless identity management service to easily manage user identities at scale in Visual Studio App Center. Today, we’re really excited to launch App Center Auth in early preview!

Improvements to Visual Studio App Center Distribution

Earlier this year we started an effort for widespread customer outreach to understand our users and guide product prioritization. The effort helped us gain a lot of insight and helped our prioritization last quarter. However, as we continue to grow, we unfortunately don’t have the capacity to reach out to as many customers as we would like.

Faster Android Tests and NUnit 3

Xamarin.UITest is a popular C# testing framework which works great with both native and cross-platform apps, using frameworks like Xamarin.

Growing the Visual Studio App Center Service Portfolio

Successful apps typically identify users using a third-party identity service or the less popular username and password approach. These apps usually manage some sort of application data, whether it’s the user’s data shared across multiple devices or data shared across multiple users, groups, or even whole companies or divisions. Data in this context means structured or unstructured data as well as binary data such as files.

Introducing Diagnostics Search and User ID support

When releasing a new version of your app, you might get user complaints about crashes they’re experiencing in the new version. As a developer, you want to find the root cause as soon as possible to minimize the number of users affected. However, if you have millions of users, this could result in millions of crashes. Finding crashes would be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Going Public (With Our Plans)

Starting now, we’re opening the doors and letting all of you in, you now have a front row seat to our product planning process. Following the Visual Studio Code model, we published all our current product plans in the App Center GitHub repository.
