Microsoft Visual Studio understands much more than Windows

Microsoft Launches Visual Studio 2015.

After a year of previews and one release candidate, Microsoft today officially launched the latest version of its Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) together with an update to its .NET framework. Visual Studio 2015 (VS 2015) is now available for download (and purchase), but Team Foundation Server 2015 — part of Microsoft’s online services for development teams — will remain in its release candidate phase until next month. Visual Studio Community, for example, the much-improved free version of the software for non-enterprise users, has now been downloaded 5 million times since its launch seven months ago.

As Microsoft’s corporate VP of its Developer Division S. “Soma” Somasegar told us, the company’s aim with Visual Studio was to make good on its promise to deliver a tool that allows developers to target all the popular platforms. “When you think about Visual Studio, the core theme is that VS 2015 is a cross-platform tool set,” he said. “Developers have been asking for this and we are delivering it.” To do this, the Visual Studio team integrated Apache Cordova, for example, so developers can write iOS and Android apps using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. For Autodesk, the advantage here isn’t so much that it could reuse some of its existing code from AutoCAD, for example, but that its developers don’t have to learn a new tool set. Some of the new language features like Light Bulbs for alerting developers of potential fixes in their C# and Visual Basic code, were made possible thanks to the Roslyn project the company open sourced last year. As part of today’s launch, Microsoft teamed up with Humanitarian Toolbox to write a real-world app in VS 2015 that could help communities after disaster strikes.
