Windows Home Server Client Side SDK around the corner?

October 20th, 2008

It’s been a long time since I last heard of an allegedly upcoming client side SDK for Windows Home Server. At PDC ’08 the Windows Home Server Team will be giving a session called “Developing Connected Home Applications and Services for Windows Home Server”. The session description contains this line:

create and deploy a PC application for controlling the service

I hope this hints to the existence of a soon-to-be-released client side SDK for Windows Home Server.

UPDATE: Unfortunately there’s still no sight of the Client Side SDK. Maybe the Windows Home Server Team have canceled their plans for it :-(

Here you can watch the PDC ’08 session videos. CJ Saretto mentions in one of them that they do not offer any form of universal communication channel for client/server communication (to/from Windows Home Server) at all. Well, I’m too disappointed right now to look up the exact position in the video…
