Microsoft Visual Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft, the free community edition supports plugins and available at no cost. It lets you develop websites, applications, web apps, mobile apps and web services. Visual Studio supports 36 different programming languages and allows the code editor and debugger to support (to varying degrees) nearly any programming language, provided a language-specific service exists. Built-in languages include C, C++ and C++/CLI (via Visual C++), VB.NET (via Visual Basic .NET), C# (via Visual C#), F# (as of Visual Studio 2010) and TypeScript (as of Visual Studio 2013 Update 2). Support for other languages such as Python, Ruby, Node.js, and M among others is available via language services installed separately. It also supports XML/XSLT, HTML/XHTML, JavaScript and CSS.

  • Code editor: Supports syntax highlighting and code completion using IntelliSense for variables, functions, methods, loops and LINQ queries.
  • Debugger: Debugger works both as a source-level debugger and as a machine-level debugger.
