Description

Visual Studio 2015 is an integrated development environment you can use to create applications and libraries with many different frameworks and languages. It has a rich feature set, including an intelligent editor, built in compiler (and related tools), and context sensitive help. This course starts with basic concepts like projects and solutions, shows you how to make Visual Studio look and work the way you want it to, and demonstrates how to use the most popular tool windows and dialogs. It goes further into tips and shortcuts that will save you time every day. Using Visual Studio is about more than writing code or reading code written by others. To be truly productive, you need to debug well and understand the designers that help you build your user interface. This course also shows you how to add helpful extensions that make Visual Studio even better. When you've completed it, you'll know how to use the tool itself and can focus on a specific language or framework as your next step.
