With the new release of Visual Studio 2017, Here’s what Visual Studio 2017 can offer you !
But what’s changed, what’s in it for developers?
Cloud Services :
There is tighter integration with cloud services. Azure is very much leading the pack from a developers perspective – like technologies called ‘Containers’; these are now very tightly integrated directly into Visual Studio with Docker. Visual Studio makes it easy to configure, build, debug, package, and deploy apps and services on Azure.
Mobile App Development :
Both Xamarin and the Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova are included in this release. Both make it extremely easy to create solid mobile solutions for your customers in an efficient modern way. If you are more used to of Web development, then you should strongly consider using the Cordova tools.
Enhanced debugging experience :
The overall debugging and testing workflow and experience has been revised to help developers find problems as early as possible in the dev lifecycle. Live Unit Testing, Exception Helpers, and Run to Click to fix the path to regression risks and exposing the root cause of new bugs.
Cross-platform development :
Seamlessly provide a software to any targeted platform. Extend DevOps processes to SQL Server through Redgate Data Tools and safely automate database deployments from Visual Studio. you can use .NET Core to write apps and libraries that run unmodified across Windows, Linux, and macOS operating systems.
