Play by Play: Visual Studio Live Share

by Brice Wilson and Scott Allen

In this course, you'll learn the capabilities of Visual Studio Live Share and how to use it to enhance collaboration between remote developers using both Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code.

What you'll learn

Play by Play is a series in which top technologists work through a problem in real time, unrehearsed, and unscripted. In this course, Play by Play: Visual Studio Live Share, Scott Allen and Brice Wilson demonstrate how to use Visual Studio Live Share to share code and collaborate on different types of projects. You'll learn how to follow developers through a codebase, work independently in the same shared project, debug together, and expose servers and terminals to other developers in your Live Share session. Along the way, you'll also learn about the security features built-in to Live Share, some of the configuration options that are available and how to use the technology across platforms.
