With today's launch of Windows 10, Microsoft is also opening up the operating system for app developers as well. The Window 10 SDK tools are now available for download, allowing developers to create apps that will work on the final non-preview version of the operating system.

Developers can choose to download a stand-alone SDK for Windows 10 that can work with a variety of other third-party software tools, or they can download a version that also includes the new Visual Studio 2015 tools from Microsoft. The company says:

"These tools include universal app templates, a code editor, a powerful debugger, Windows Mobile emulators, rich language support, and more, all ready to use in production."

Microsoft is also expected to hope its Dev Center later today to allow developers to upload their Windows 10 app submissions for new and existing apps.
