Touch Develop on the Surface

microsoft-touch-develop-appHello from Canada! So a few people have asked me whether it is possible to build the applications on the surface. Me and my wife went gadget showing in a local best buy and we wanted to see what tablets would accept TouchDevelop. While in the store I decided to play with the Microsoft Surface Tablet. I wanted to make sure that it ran. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the Surface RT but they did have the Pro device which allowed us to have a play.

You can see how Touch Develop runs smoothly through using the surface. There aren’t any issues with it lagging or slowing down. I was able to add in some variables and was able to do some basic programming before a customer service representative appeared…

  1. I did a bunch of TouchDevelop demos last week on a Samsung Slate. No keyboard at all and it was easy as can be. Plus I did most of it with the screen upside down to me so that my audience could see what I was doing. Tables are great for TD.
