Over the past several years, Microsoft has been hard at work re-implementing the full Visual Basic and C# language stacks. The goal was an improved stack with a cleaner architecture to help the Managed Languages team to work faster, empower others to build "code smart" tools and applications, and create a richer and smarter IDE experience in Visual Studio. This session will review Visual Studio 2015 and how it delivers a variety of improvements, including new language features, smarter and better IDE experiences, improved debugging, code-aware diagnostic analyzers and more.

  • What the new features in Visual Studio 2015 offer to increase your productivity
  • How to take advantage of Visual Studio 2015 to cut down on your development time
  • How Visual Studio 2015 helps you write better applications
