Have you ever wanted to...
... add Virtual Earth to a website?
... use the Live platform to build Messenger activities?
... build Search on your site?
... write your own Gadgets?
... perform authentication and authorization with Live IDs?
... or -- do something else with the other components of Windows Live?
I've just discovered the Windows Live Dev beta, your one-stop shop for the Windows Live Platform. It includes information on getting started with Windows Live services, the latest documentation and APIs, samples, access to community areas and relevant blogs, and announcements of future releases and innovations.
And it turns out I have colleagues here in Ireland who are working on it!
