announcing platform api for partners

Heroku has always made it easy for you to extend your apps with add-ons. Starting today, partners can access the Platform API to build a more secure and cohesive developer experience between add-ons and Heroku. Several add-ons are already using the new Platform API for Partners. Adept Scale, a long-time add-on in our marketplace that provides automated scaling of Heroku dynos, has updated its integration to offer a stronger security stance, with properly scoped access to each app it is added to.

microsoft rebrands twitch competitor as mixer, throws in more streaming features

Since its inception, Microsoft’s live-streaming platform was known as Beam. That changes today, with the team behind the platform announcing a name change to Mixer.According to Mixer co-founder and engineering lead Matt Salsamendi, the name change was a difficult, but necessary, decision to make, if Mixer is to succeed on a global scale:Why the name change? This was a tough decision, and not one that we made lightly. But, it was something that we decided on as a team. We believe so much in the power of the platform and want to grow it in every major market around the world. Unfortunately, that wasn’t something we could do with the Beam name.Apart from the name change, Mixer also announced several features that will make their way to the platform soon, the headliner being “co-streaming.” Th

twitter reveals 11 more video partners a day after announcing bloomberg deal

Just one day after announcing a deal with Bloomberg to stream news reports 24/7, Twitter has now revealed video partnership arrangements with 11 more content providers in the fields of news, sports and entertainment.News partners will be Bloomberg, Buzzfeed, Cheddar and The Verge. Sports coverage will be provided by MLBAB, PGA Tour, The Players’ Tribune and Stadium. The three entertainment channels will be IMG Fashion, Live Nation and Propagate.You can find full details from Twitter’s press release below.All this new content is of course geared to generating ad-selling opportunities for the platform. Twitter first shared its plans for a major new push into video last month, in a shareholder’s meeting for its Q1 2017 results.Buzzfeed said then that it was considering some kind of Twitter vi

office 365 everywhere? not on these devices

Microsoft seems to want Office 365 to be its new Windows, the universal personal computing platform. Windows sales have declined for years now, as users switched a lot their computing to mobile devices and, to a lesser extent, Macs. Positioning Office 365 as the common platform across the new reality of a multidevice world makes sense.
But Microsoft’s execution on—and commitment to—that vision is highly uneven. Some parts of the company clearly believe in that cross-platform vision. Some parts see mobile devices as junior adjuncts to computers. Some parts see mobile as near-equal partners, given Microsoft’s failure to have its own successful mobile platform, but they can’t get behind Mac support because that platform directly competes with Windows.
How that tentative internal state transla

lawbreakers dev: pc/console cross-platform play is “dumb”

Enlarge/ All those Lawbreakers characters had better be playing on the same platform...Share this storyAfter years of online gaming being strictly segregated by platform, recent months have seen a resurgence in the idea of playing with friends and rivals on different hardware. That includes some hesitant attempts by game makers to cross the PC/console barrier with cross-play between players using a mouse/keyboard and those using handheld controllers, even in first-person shooters.At least one major developer is not a fan of the emerging trend, though. "We made the decision not to do cross-play, and there are a lot of people with this pipe dream of PC and console cross-play," Lawbreakers lead developer Cliff Bleszinski told PCGamesN while announcing a PS4 port of what was formerly a PC excl
