Tools that can help you code confidently and find issues faster. Tools that make it easy for you to design/code/debug your code easily with your team members. Tools that make it easy for you to work from anywhere – whether you are working alone at your desk or doing a code review from the beach. Visual Studio aims to be the tool that helps you do all that as you develop your software along with your teammates.
