The first public preview of Windows 8 brought with it news of the evolution of the applications designed to run on top of the next generation operating system from Microsoft.
Here is an excerpt from a job posting uncovered by Mary-Jo Foley:
Now is the time to take Office programmability to the next level. We're a small but strong team within Visual Studio that is currently in the planning stages for Office 15 programmability tools. One of our key goals is to enable professional developers to contribute to the Office platform by making development for Office as easy and fun as building applications for the next version of Windows.
Microsoft has confirmed that it will share the first deep insight into Windows 8 as well as its developer strategy for the operating system at the BUILD conference in September 2011.
