We’ve started down that journey releasing early previews to customers and invitedthem tocome along.

Cross-platform and cross-device Progressive Web Apps, WebView, Edge DevTools, WebDriver, Webhint are examples of technologies we build and ship. Our goal is to help make web an excellent canvas that developers choose for their creations that span across Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android and more. We partner closely with several teams across Microsoft - VS Code, TypeScript, Visual Studio, Office, Surface,Xbox, Windows etc. to enable developers to build great applications using web technologies. We are deeply engaged in the Chromium OSS project and continue to work closely with other browser vendors, web standards bodies, and the open source community at large.

Given the breadth of technology used to build interactive and immersive experiences on the web, you will have the opportunity to not only enable others to be successful but learn new technologies yourself.
