Microsoft Launches Azure Blockchain Development Kit For Ethereum Applications

Microsoft has just released tools that will allow clients to build Ethereum (ETH) applications using Azure’s cloud computing platform. The information was announced by Chris Pietschmann of Microsoft MVP a few days ago.

Microsoft Releases Azure Blockchain Development Kit for ETH

This new tool will be allowing developers to create and also deploy Ethereum decentralized applications on Azure Blockchain Service and the Ethereum Blockchain. This development kit works as an extension to Microsoft's source-code editor called Visual Studio Code. This will allow developers to deploy the necessary smart contracts and use Solidity and Truffle.

The blog post explains that there are other tools for Visual Studio Code but this is the first official set of development tools released by Microsoft. On the matter, they wrote:

“This proves even further the investment and dedication that Microsoft is putting forth towards the use of Blockchain ledger technologies in the Enterprise, or even on the public blockchain networks.”

The extension is currently available for both Windows and MacOS operating systems and it is hosted as an open source initiative on GitHub. A few days ago, Starbucks announced that it would be using Microsoft’s Azure Blockchain Service in order to track coffee production. There are several other initiatives that allow companies and firms to track the source of their products.

At the same time, Microsoft has launched a token-building kit with the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance just a few weeks ago. The main intention was to help companies design and create crypto tokens for their particular use cases.

Last week, the company informed that it will be promoting the JP Morgan Chase QUorum network using the Azure platform.
