Code and code in an easy way to create applications

The basic programming application that anybody should use is developed by Microsoft. With Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, you can start using this Integrated Development Environment for all your programming works. Although its size is too heavy, some more of 10GB on my computer, the tools it includes worth it. I’ve never seen an IDE so intuitive and helpful in my life. As an amateur programmer, wasting just some couple hours from time to time programming, I find this software really useful, with an attractive interface and a good variety.

The good point about this IDE is that it is completely updated, so the latest innovations are included. You can create your code for web; edit C++ and other possibilities such as debugging code with connected JavaScript apps. I really like this software since I can create apps for Windows Phone and Android immediately, thanks to the tools and functions included by default in the application. Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 works really fast, helping me with the autocompleting tool which can guess the next line code. This way I can work faster and lightly. Furthermore, the online functions included as well as the support made this application perfect for both beginners and advanced users.

Pros

  • Easy tools and functions for creating your code
  • Intuitive workflow and autocomplete option
  • A lot of new features to discover

Cons

  • It is heavy on computer’s resources

This is one of the tools that will make you application development simple

I first came across visual studio when i was in search of a program that would allow me to create application for android and mac and also programs for windows. When i later installed visual studio, i was met by a simple to use interface that could be customized to anyone's liking.

What visual studio offers is a simple way to create things and also an even easier way to code anything. To toggle between the coding and the app form you just double click or navigate using some buttons at the top. Like in adobe Dreamweaver, visual studio also gives you the ability to add buttons, text bars ,hyperlinks and anything else you would like by just clicking on the task bar and navigating to any option you would like. 100% no coding needed there, but if you would like the button to become an action maker, you need to do some coding.

The coding part is not that hard since, the program has an auto fill property that completes a word for you. This is great since the probability of you making a mistake is lowered, the feature also underlines words or codes that bring no meaning or won't impact anything.

There is also a debugging option, that also acts as a beta user or tester. It actually shows you how the app will look and behave when fully completed.

In visual 2015, the ability to directly create android app is fully integrated but in 2013 you have to download addon like xamarin to complement visual studio.

But the fact of the matter is that visual studio has the ability to make things happened that you never thought of.

Pros

  • Visual has its own programming language
  • Updates always bring new features
  • The program is easy to use

Cons

  • Best things are always for sale
