‘No other cloud vendor offers this fully comprehensive developer experience and overall platform capabilities,’ Scott Guthrie, Microsoft executive vice president of the Microsoft Cloud and AI Group, said at Microsoft Build.

New Visual Studio Enhancements

Microsoft has the most comprehensive tools and platforms for developers to use — as well as the teams that are on — to leverage, to code, collaborate, and ship solutions from anywhere.

There are tools that have integrated collaboration capabilities so that you can work across the team, so that you can have your entire team collaborate securely together.

You can use your favorite languages, open source frameworks to make sure that you can leverage the full ecosystem that’s out there, regardless of your platform of choice. You can build, test and deploy all of your code to the cloud using the great set of GitHub capabilities and Visual Studio capabilities that we provide.

We just released a new version of Visual Studio 2019 we call the 16.10 release. This includes a bunch of great productivity enhancements for .NET and C++ developers, enhanced tooling support, as well as improved container and Azure tooling features, including support for our new Azure API Management, all built into the IDE (integrated developer environment).

We also announced the new version of Visual Studio, which we are calling Visual Studio 2022 This is going to be the first 64-bit native version of Visual Studio, which will bring a lot of great performance and scalability improvements to developers working on large, complex projects.

.NET 6 marks the completion of our journey to really unify the .NET ecosystem. .NET 6 Preview 4 is now available which unifies the .NET platform while also introducing new innovations — like C# 10, .NET Maui, and Blazor — that enable you to build cross-platform, native mobile and desktop apps for Android, Mac OS, iOS and Windows, all using a single codebase.

Visual Studio and .NET are the perfect complements to this larger developer set of capabilities. Visual Studio, GitHub and Azure, in particular, enable developers to focus on building apps and not have to worry about all the infrastructure that’s required in order to run them.

With Visual Studio, GitHub and Azure, you get a seamless experience that enables you to focus on your code and deploy and get it to the cloud using your favorite languages and platforms of your choice so that you can code, collaborate and deploy applications securely across the team anywhere you want.
