Microsoft Releases Beta of Siena Rapid Development Tool

Siena aims to make app development as easy as using PowerPoint or Excel.


These days, business analysts and other users without programming skills are clamoring for the ability to create apps. To meet their needs, Microsoft has just released a beta version of Siena, a rapid application development tool. It allows users who are familiar with Office to create HTML5- and JavaScript-based Windows 8 applications "in a matter of minutes."

"The result is an immediately usable app with all the rich information, differentiated looks and purpose-specific intelligence expected of modern Windows apps."
