Microsoft's newly announced Windows 10 compilers for Android and iOS apps have some very interesting code names, as do the tools for turning Windows desktop apps and web apps into ones that can work under the company's universal app plans for Windows 10.
Microsoft's umbrella name for these tools is the Universal Windows Platform Bridges. The Android version has the code name "Project Astoria". Here's how Microsoft describes it:
The iOS tools are being made under the name "Project Islandwood":
Classic Windows desktop apps have their own compliers, under the code name ""Project Centennial". Finally, web app tools have the code name "Project Westminster"
The company says that more information about all of these compilers will be revealed later this summer. However, it is extending an invite to Android and iOS app developers to sign up for a private beta of their tools so they can get some early feedback.
