Five-star mobile development
Build apps for iOS and Android devices. Develop in C#, share app logic and code across platforms and get fully customized, native user experiences with Xamarin. Or, use your existing web skills and build browser-based and hybrid apps that support unique device features with Apache Cordova.
Streamlined cloud development
A built-in suite of Azure tools enables you to easily create cloud-first applications powered by Microsoft Azure. Configure, build, debug, package, and deploy applications and services to Microsoft Azure directly from Visual Studio, without having to leave the Integrated development environment (IDE).
Spend more time building great apps and less time on repetitive tasks. From a brand-new lightweight and modular installation tailored to your needs, a faster IDE from startup to shut down, to a new way of viewing, editing, and debugging any code without projects and solutions, Visual Studio 2017 helps you stay focused on your code.
