Microsoft Popfly is a mashup creation application.
This email was sent to users on Thursday, July 16, 2009 advising them of the deadpool:
Iâ€™m writing to thank you for registering and using Microsoft Popfly. Iâ€™ve been fortunate enough to see all the innovative mashups, Web pages, and games created by the Popfly community since we launched Popfly two years ago. It has truly been a pleasure to watch the spirit of creativity flow through a growing Popfly community over the life of the product.
Itâ€™s with a heavy heart that I share some news with you today: on August 24, 2009, the Popfly service will be discontinued and all sites, references, and resources will be taken down.
After August 24th, your access to your Popfly account, including any games and mashups that youâ€™ve created, will be discontinued. However, Microsoft is still very much dedicated to helping you express your creativity and pursuing a path to software development. If youâ€™re interested in refining your skills in Web applications, please visit Microsoft Web Platform Installer. For those interested in programming on the Xbox, then please visit Microsoft XNA or Microsoft Kodu. And for those who are interested in Windows programming, please visit Microsoft Express.
Thanks again for your support and please donâ€™t hesitate to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
Regards, John Montgomery for the Popfly Team
