New Extension for Visual Studio Released to Create HTML5 Apps Using C# and XAML
A new extension for Visual Studio has been released in beta that allows developers to create cross-platform HTML5 applications exclusively using C# and XAML. The extension, which is named "C#/XAML for HTML5", is available in beta for free to the first 5000 developers who sign up.

The tool is designed for the developers who use Microsoft languages and tools (C#, XAML, Visual Studio) and who would like to extend the reach of their applications to platforms other than Microsoft's (Windows, Windows Phone, Xbox), including Android, iOS, Mac, Chromebook, BlackBerry, and Linux.

It is also of interest to developers who wish to create client-only rich web applications ("single-page applications") using C#/XAML without having to manipulate HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

"Many developers, who are accustomed to C#/XAML, have neither the time nor the inclination to use HTML, CSS and JavaScript, or to learn Objective C or Java, to run their apps on iOS, Android, or on the web." said Giovanni Albani, founder and CEO of Userware. "We are introducing a solution that can help them to reach all platforms without having to throw away all the know-how, tools and code base that they have acquired over the years."
