In the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio, developers are afforded the tools to create programs and applications quicker and code with colleagues in real-time.
Visual studio 2019 makes use of powerful artificial intelligence (AI) to assist programmers and developers alike by not only identifying potential system errors and bugs, but in making recommendations to them as well. Via Live Share, now Visual Studio will allow those using it to write code collaboratively live and direct.
Game designers and web application developers will undoubtedly benefit from this update, with the program allowing them to create apps far more quickly. Faster creation means a quicker release date and when launched, the apps will contain less bugs and errors leading to better reception from the target market.
Microsoft Corporate Vice-President of Program Management, John Montgomery explained:
“These capabilities work with both your existing project and new projects – from cross-platform C++ applications, to .NET mobile apps for Android and iOS written using Xamarin, to cloud-native applications using Azure services.”
He added that the ambition of Visual Studio 2019 is to offer support to projects through each stage in the process, from development and testing to debugging and deployment. For convenience this version of the popular program is designed to keep changing between apps, websites and portals to a minimum.
Assistance from Artificial Intelligence
To learn how developers prefer to code and speed things up, Visual Studio utilises artificial intelligence in Intellicode that works with languages like Python, Java and C#.
Intellicode can track down potential bugs and errors by scanning the code to identify irregular patterns using machine learning among other methods. It can even lead those coding to areas that require further attention.
New advantages of Visual Studio 2019
Those using this latest version will benefit from helpful features such as a single-click clean-up of code, an indicator which tells programmers when their code is spot on as well as larger screen real estate for code. There are also noticeable improvements to both the debugging capabilities and the selection screen for templates.
Those working with Visual Studio 2019 are able to code offline and publish later to Microsoft Azure in a matter of minutes, and can then be used in conjunction with Key Vault and Cognitive Services among others.
At the development stage, programmers can also share their code with colleagues via Live Share in real time.
Program Manager for Microsoft, Jon Chu commented on the possibilities for collaboration:
“Live Share complements the many diverse ways you work – whether it be together while co-located in the same office, remotely from home, or in different countries on opposite sides of the world.”
