Developer Software and Tools

Experience the possibilities when you shop Microsoft for the latest developer tools, software, and accessories. Designed to give you everything you need to successfully build applications, connect with other developers, and boost productivity, we put the latest developer resources right at your fingertips.

When it comes to developer software, Visual Studio delivers the tools you need to build applications across multiple platforms. Depending on the version you choose, you can work in a unified IDE to create solutions for the web, desktop, cloud, server, and phone; examine and refine code quality; provision and manage virtual lab environments for testing; use project management tools to coordinate your team; and much more.

In addition, you'll find SQL Server Developer Edition, which enhances performance for mission-critical applications. Designed to help you build and test database applications, SQL Server 2014 Developer Edition features accelerated performance for transaction processing, data warehousing, and BI with in-memory technologies built-in. It also gives you easy access to a wide range of data, on-premises and cloud connection points, and the ability to unlock new hybrid scenarios -- like simplified database backup and disaster recovery to the cloud.

To help you work more comfortably, we even offer accessories designed with developers in mind. From keyboards with a zero-degree slope that takes pressure off your wrists, to a touch mouse, touchpad, foot switch, and more, you'll find everything you need work your way.

Of course, if you want to master the latest developer software, acquaint yourself with emerging developer tools, build your skills or just challenge yourself in a whole new way, you can do it all from the Microsoft Developer Network. Here, you'll find a variety of resources, including those that allow you to take advantage of special offers and discounts, access featured platforms and tools, participate in developer-specific events, learn from others through our developer forums, and much more.
