A Much Improved Software with Widespread options and Customization Capacities

By Isay Almenanza

On Friday, May 23, 2014

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

Visual Studio enabled our team to develop apps across all devices in Windows - from desktop to tablets, and smartphones. This is pretty easy as Visual Studio integrates with the devices’ underlying platform. It also enables users to apply emerging web design patterns in a ASP.NET solution.

Integrated solutions and shorter cycles are also featured in the Visual Studio. It enables better collaboration in development teams using Team Rooms. It offers a single destination for sharing status, discussing issues, and tracking decisions between team members. It also has the InRelease feature, which makes automated deployments to be repeated and dependable. Stakeholders are ensured to have sufficient communication for business-approval workflows, so that release is done properly.

Visual Studio 2013 provides tools that simplify developing business applications that rely mostly on data entry and visualization. It seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Office and in the cloud, which enables productivity applications and customized collaboration based on the tools already familiar to business users.

Believe me, the Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 is the best development environment there is today. A high-tech toolset for development teams, it turns dreams into reality. In fact, with it, our team at work was able to develop cloud-powered cross-device apps. It allowed us to use agile and flexible planning tools, so we can use techniques such as incremental development. We were able to ensure that our vision was preserved during the implementation because of the features it included. We were able to improve the quality of our work, but at the same time, reduce time doing so. Finally, it has brought together our development and operations team.


  • It has a simple, yet flexible user-interface
  • It makes coding easier especially with MSDN subscription


  • Some may find its diversity as chaotic
