    Microsoft explains why it makes sense to have web apps in Windows 10 app store


    Microsoft is slowly bringing Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) to the Microsoft Store (formerly known as Windows Store). The public version of Windows 10 already supports PWAs and the future Windows 10 updates are expected to improve the integration. For example, you will be soon able to install PWAs from the Microsoft Edge browser itself.

    In a series of videos uploaded by Microsoft’s Windows YouTube channel, the company explained why they are interested in Progressive Web Apps initiative.

    “The web is pretty awesome and it’s a great distribution mechanism but not everyone is used to looking for apps and experiences on the web,” the video transcript reads. The [PWAs] discoverable via the store is also a great option and once you’re in the store you also have the ability to promote your app alongside other apps.”

    “Microsoft has actually been very interested in the web for quite a long time when Windows 8 came along we actually enabled developers to build native apps using web technologies,” Microsoft explains.

    “We just we see that the web is a great distribution mechanism it’s a great place to invest in building great experiences and it’s where a lot of the great experiences are being built and we want to be supportive,” the video transcript reads.

    If you’re interested, you can watch the videos by opening Microsoft’s Windows YouTube channel.

    Microsoft is purging a lot of low quality apps from the Windows Store

    "Microsoft is sending emails to some Windows Store developers informing them that their apps have been removed from the Store for violating its quality standards."

    "Neowin reports that app developers have been receiving these emails over the past couple of days:

    In its latest review of the Store, Microsoft is evaluating if the published apps are good enough to be listed in the Windows Store. This includes publicly available apps as well as private beta apps. Additionally, Microsoft is also asking developers to delete any promotional campaigns for their apps to prevent advertising charges. Similarly, app name reservations are also being nullified; which means that if your app is unpublished, there's no guarantee that you'll be able to republish it under the same name.

    Officially, the policies for the Microsoft Store says that apps must have "distinct and informative metadata" and "provide a valuable and quality user experience". There are also some specific standards that must be in the apps, including having a name that is not similar to another app or device, along with offering a description that is accurate about its features and functions.

    There have certainly been many Windows Store users who have complained over the years about the large number of apps published that are clones of other apps or ones that are simply poorly made. Hopefully, this new move by Microsoft will help to curb these issues, at least for now.

    Microsoft explains why it makes sense to have web apps in Windows 10 app store

    MSSQL and Web App

    So for class I have to make a Database using Microsoft SQL Express 2014. I have made the database and a few tables, populated said tables.

    Now I'm looking into what I have to do to make a web app that would look nice for any users wanting to make use of my Database. How does the work I do in MSSQL get added into a web app and what/how do I make a web app that works with MSSQL? I know sql has its own code but how does the web app make the queries?

    If someone can point me to some good books or sites to read that would explain / teach that would be great too.
