Microsoft + Open Source

The Microsoft + Open Source blog shows you how easy it can be to deliver interoperable solutions with a combination or Microsoft and non-Microsoft technologies. We'll show you the out-of-the box Windows Azure experiences for open source solutions like Hadoop, web frameworks like Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal, and open government solutions like CKAN. We'll also take first-party SDKs for a spin, developing apps across platforms – Android, iOS or Windows. We hope this blog will open up opportunities for you to use the tools, languages, and frameworks you know and love, delivering innovation without boundaries. Any other interoperability scenarios you'd like to see? Please let us know in the comments!
