Microsoft’s Developer Blogs are Getting an Update

Visual Studio Blog

Update: Launch is now scheduled for mid-November to ensure you have the best blog experience. We appreciate all of the feedback so far and we look forward to showing what we’ve been working on!

In the coming days, we’ll be moving our developer blogs to a new platform with a modern, clean design and powerful features that will make it easy for you to discover and share great content. This week, you’ll see the Visual Studio, IoTDev, and Premier Developer blogs move to a new URL while additional developer blogs will transition over the coming weeks.  You’ll continue to receive all the information and news from our teams, including access to all past posts. Your RSS feeds will continue to seamlessly deliver posts and any of your bookmarked links will re-direct to the new URL location.

We’d love your feedback

Our most inspirational ideas have come from this community and we want to make sure our developer blogs are exactly what you need. If you have immediate questions, check our FAQ below. If you don’t see your issue or question, please submit a bug report through our Feedback button.

Share your thoughts about the current blog design and content by taking our Microsoft Developer Blogs survey and telling us what you think! We’d also love your suggestions for future topics that our authors could write about. Please use the Feedback button docked to the right on the blogs (as shown above) to share what kinds of information, tutorials, features, or anything you’d like to see covered in a future blog post.

    The Developer Blogs FAQ seems to not render very well. It looks like it lives on the old site.
