Microsoft Visual Studio is a great tool that allows you to make all kinds of software projects fairly easy.

By James Meyette

On Monday, January 12, 2015

Microsoft Visual studio has been around for some time now this being the version for the year 2013 it has come a very long way since its days of youth and it has grown a great deal. Originally the program could really only be used to make command line programs and winForms, you are still able to use the IDE for such tasks but it can also be used for making Win8 Native apps as well as web applications due to all of the integrations of many new programming language standards.

Originally you also needed to have multiple versions of the product specific to your programming language that you primarily used this has changed and the utility allows you to use a multitude of languages right under one interface so you are able to have multiple projects going from one computer and one program rather than having to have so many things on your machine all at once.

Pros

  • Clean and easy to use interface
  • You are able to use a number of supported languages

Cons

  • Sometimes the program can be rather difficult to setup
