.NET or JavaScript. Your choice.

Whether you’re coming from the .NET world or love to do everything in JavaScript, you’re in luck. You get the same great Parse functionality in both.

Rich developer features
like LINQ or TAP.

The Windows 8 SDK uses the latest features of C# and Visual Basic with rich features like LINQ and Task-based Asynchronous Pattern. Built by some of the folks that built .NET, the Windows 8 SDK from Parse brings together the best of both worlds.
