Hi all!  I know it's been a while since I last blogged, but I've been hard at work.  Since January, I've been excitedly working at a startup called Parse, working hard to make building rich, connected mobile apps easy.  Parse provides a ready-made backend for your mobile app, and it allows you to go from zero to app in no time.  I use it for my own apps (across all platforms), and we've got lots of folks building amazing things on our platform.  I'm extremely proud of the work we do, and I think everyone that is doing mobile app development should give it a close look and see if it meets their needs.

I haven't forgotten my roots in the .NET world, either.  While we've been hard at work producing SDKs for iOS, Android, and JavaScript, we've also been keeping a pulse on Windows development, and today we've announced a Windows 8 SDK, supporting both JavaScript and .NET/XAML development.  As you know if you've followed me since my Silverlight days, I hold .NET development very dear, and we've put a lot of care into building these SDKs to make building your apps as easy and seamless as possible.

Please take a look, and don't hesitate to email us at feedback@parse.com with your feedback!

See our launch announcementplatform page, and developer guide.  Getting started is free!  I can't wait to hear what you think.
