Java Tools Challenge results
As I mentioned in a previous blog post, we are committed to making VS Team Services a great solution for all developers – for any application on any platform. 3 months ago we kicked off the Java Tools Challenge, sponsored by the Visual Studio Partner Program, and the Visual Studio Marketplace which was a longer term virtual hackathon designed to bring awareness to our Java solutions and engage the Java community to build working and published tools and apps. The Challenge was an opportunity for Java developers to explore the extensibility of Visual Studio Team Services as well as make use of some of our solutions for Java developers such as our Eclipse plugin, cross platform command line, IntelliJ plugin, our new cross platform build agent and more. They were challenged to develop either a Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) extension that helps developers create, test, deploy, etc. Java apps or create a Java app using Visual Studio Team Explorer Everywhere (Eclipse plugin) or JetBrains IntelliJ plugin. It is my pleasure to announce the following winners of the Java Tools Challenge!
Congratulations to all of our Java Tools Challenge participants that submitted their projects and especially to those that won prizes! And, a big thanks to our other judges: Paul Barham, David Staheli, and Brian Benz as well as DevPost for hosting the Challenge!
