Visual Studio 2013: What's New

with expert Mike Benkovich

Visual Studio can be looked at as a code editor AND as a platform for building applications that use the .NET framework. It is a highly tuned interactive development environment (or IDE) that has some great features and capabilities that make the developer’s job easier. Things like intellisense, code tag coloring and highlighting make it easier to read and write code efficiently and correctly. Code Completion, Goto Reference, and CodeMap help us explore and understand complex code. In this course we look at the many features of Visual Studio including the editors and the debugger, working with relational databases and the test project to see how you can get the most out of the tool.
