A Much Improved Software with Widespread options and Customization Capacities

I have been practicing MS Visual Studio for couple of times now and I am fascinated how this program works. It is very helpful and reliable. This tool has a huge platform that has a lot of programming languages. It has more useful tools and interacts with MS platforms from Window 8.1 to HTML5.

There are important new features that I believe pushed VS 2013 ahead of the competition like the Code Lens. It is one feature that you must try out to appreciate. It changes the IDE appearance of a code from the text file contents and adds highlights over definite lines as the first line of the class definition. This software also integrates with VS Online, also known as Team Foundation Service. It is a web-based plan support method that includes bug tracking.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 improved so much. It has built a nearly effortless development experience. My advice to those beginners who want to get into Windows development, VS 2013 can be intimidating for its widespread options and customization abilities, but I am sure the risk is all worth the value to start using this best programming IDEs obtainable today.


  • It’s very reliable and useful
  • It has excellent new functions


  • The price maybe too high
