Microsoft® Surface® Software Development Kit (SDK) Workstation Edition
The Microsoft Surface Software Development Kit (SDK) Workstation Edition launched was announced by Microsoft® at its PD Conference in 2009. Since then, the product has been available on the Microsoft® Download Center (144.2MB).
But then, it was only recently that the product was available offically. Developers interested in the Microsoft Surface can now get it for free. Eeven though the actual Microsoft® Surface® is needed to deploy an application with a lot of users already using Surface® Developer units to make and test their applications straight on the device, the SDK gives the option to a PC to develop, and a PC-based simulator to test, applications for the Microsoft Surface.
There was also a revelation at last year's PDC, Microsoft® has 60 Microsoft Surface partners with the number going up to 250 active partners now.
This is a very steep growth and Microsoft® also confirmed that since the last PDC, the Microsoft Surface SDK Workstation Edition has been downloaded over 5,000 times.
