Happy 20th Birthday, Visual Studio!


As Microsoft Visual Studio celebrates their 20th year – developers are rejoicing as Visual Studio 2017 is released! Over the past two decades Visual Studio has grown from a J++ and InterDev development environment to a powerhouse suite of productivity. The new release of Visual Studio 2017 brings Visual Basic, Visual C++, Visual J++, Visual FoxPro, and Visual InterDev into one single, beautiful product. The family of Visual Studio products enables developers to globally develop across Android, iOS, Linux, MacOS, and Windows.
