Course Overview Hello. My name is Kathleen Dollard, and welcome to my course, The Visual Studio 2015 Playbook. I'm the director of engineering at ROI Code, and I love teaching people how to be more effective writing great software. This course is about your favorite development environment, Visual Studio. I'll include overlooked and underutilized features, many of which have been around for several versions of Visual Studio, and many that are brand new in Visual Studio 2015. Some of the topics I'll cover include setting up an effective environment, navigating around your code in Visual Studio, editing code, and using the Visual Studio debugging features for both debugging and light profiling. By the end of this course, you'll have tricks and techniques to make you more efficient writing and maintaining code. This lets you stay in your flow and focus on the great software you're creating. Before beginning this course, you should have a basic knowledge of Visual Studio. I'll use C# 6 for the samples. While I won't be teaching you C#, the languages behind these techniques doesn't really matter, and most of these techniques work in any language hosted inside Visual Studio. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to leverage Visual Studio features so that you can be more effective and save time every day with what you learn here in the Visual Studio 2015 Playbook course at Pluralsight.
