In this session you will walk through the new features and improvements in Visual Studio 2013 for developing, debugging, and deploying applications and services. Visual Studio 2013 brings a ton of new enhancements for productivity, debugging, and developing applications and services using the latest technologies. In this session you will get a guided tour through those new features including new debugging enhancements, Windows Store app development, ASP.NET app development, Windows Azure enhancements, productivity features and more. For client development, you'll also see how Blend for Visual Studio adds a bunch of great improvements for building XAML or HTML Windows Store apps, as well as continuing to evolve for WPF and Silverlight development as well.

You will learn:

  • How to leverage new debugging features to be more productive in developing and diagnosing problems in your code
  • How to use new project types and tooling to get the right code in place in your Web and Windows application projects more quickly
  • How to design and develop the user interface for Windows Store apps more quickly and effectively using a mix of Blend for Visual Studio and Visual Studio itself
