Course Overview Hey everyone, I'm Alex Wolf, and welcome to this course, Code Analysis in Visual Studio 2019. Visual Studio is one of the most powerful and widely used development environments in the industry, and the 2019 version is better than ever. In this course, we'll learn how to use Visual Studio code analysis tools to inspect enhance, and enforce the quality of our source code. So we'll begin by exploring the basics of code analysis, like working with the built-in Visual Studio analyzers to improve our code. Next, we'll see how to install additional analyzers into our source code for more in-depth analysis and learn to configure and customize their behavior. Finally, we'll dive into additional areas of code analysis, such as command line tooling and build pipeline integration, code metrics, and even how to get started creating our own analyzers. Now before starting this course, you should have at least a general familiarity with the .NET ecosystem and C#. Some basic experience with Visual Studio is also helpful but not required. This course is designed to be approachable to newcomers while still providing value to experienced developers. So I hope you'll join me on this journey through Code Analysis in Visual Studio 2019, right here on Pluralsight.
