Microsoft Visual Studio Community enables individual developers, researchers, the academic environment and open-source contributors to benefit from the comprehensive development package that the Professional edition of Visual Studio has to offer, at no cost. It actually is an enhanced edition of Visual Studio Express, providing programmers with a complete set of tools for cross-platform development.

Extend functionality with Visual Studio plugins

Unlike the Express version, Microsoft Visual Studio Community features plugin support, offering programmers access to thousands of extensions in the Visual Studio Gallery.

With an advanced source code designer and editor and integrated profiling and debugging tools, Microsoft Visual Studio Community bundles everything one needs to create innovative and fully functional applications for Windows (including modern Store apps), web and mobile platforms, including Android, iOS and Windows Phone.

Create, debug and compile apps for any platform

Programmers can experiment with C++ , AJAX, JavaScript, CSS, ASP.NET, Silverlight and the list of compatible languages does not end here. Its functionality can be extended to support languages such as Python.

It features Azure SDK integration, allowing you to upload your projects to Azure and analyze their performance and efficiency using the Application Insights service. Furthermore, it seamlessly connects to Visual Studio Online, allowing team collaboration and fast feedback.

The integrated Blend visual tool can help programmers design appealing, yet user-friendly interfaces for their apps, while the generous development toolset (emulators, debuggers, simulators) combined with the advanced code editor (with IntelliSense, code completion, syntax highlighting, code inspection and so on) can be used to create powerful apps for all platforms.

Professional-grade development environment

Microsoft Visual Studio Community is a full-featured edition of Visual Studio, whose functionality can be extended using plugins in the official gallery, so as to ease the development process.

Thanks to the intuitive IDE, the available code examples and tutorials, programmers can take advantage of the latest web technologies to build great-looking and functional cross-platform apps in a familiar working environment.

An advanced and feature-rich integrated development environment that comes with all the tools you need to create innovative applications

What's new in Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2019.16.10 Preview 2.1:

  • Fixed an issue in an event handler file causing a crash.
Read the full changelog

Microsoft Visual Studio is one of the most complex integrated development environments (IDE) that can be used to build projects involving software solutions, console apps, and graphical user interfaces.

During installation, users are offered the possibility to choose the additional components they want to setup, depending on the task they want to achieve: Office, SharePoint or Web developer tools, Silverlight development kits or Microsoft Foundation Classes for C++. Due to the large amount of files and data that need to be configured, it takes several minutes until installation completes (depending on the performance of the host PC).

This IDE supports several programming languages frequently used by developers and webmasters: C/C++, VB.NET, C#, and F#, whereas downloading and installing extra utilities can bring support for Python and Ruby. Users can also develop JavaScript, CSS, XML/XSLT or HTML/XHTML projects within Visual Studio.

Not only can developers start their apps from scratch, but they can also modify their existing source code or look for syntax errors. Bugs can be fixed due to the built-in debugger that can be used both as a source-level and as a machine-level one, meant to support managed code and native one developed in any supported programming language.

Due to the complexity of Visual Studio, the type of projects that can be created is equally varied, so specialized tools are provided: web and class designers, creator of forms for GUI apps and a database schema builder.

Although it runs on Windows OS, Microsoft Visual Studio does not restrict its users when it comes to the platform they can develop on: Windows Mobile, Windows CE, Silverlight, .NET Framework or .NET Compact Framework.

In other words, when developers want to create a specific type of interface or app, they can find the proper tools within Visual Studio to ensure their project is bug-free and runs smoothly.
