It’s always an event when a new version of Visual Studio comes out, and the general release of Visual Studio 2017 marks 20 years of Microsoft’s groundbreaking integrated development environment.
Visual Studio 2017 will be available for download March 7, and Microsoft is celebrating the occasion with a two-day training for developers who want to experience all the bells and whistles in the new version.
The live, online event kicks off at 8:00 am March 7, with Microsoft leaders sharing news about Visual Studio, Xamarin, .NET and Azure in a keynote address and demos. That’s followed by a day of interactive trainings on March 8.
Available in preview since early last year, Visual Studio 2017 (formerly known as Visual Studio 15) promises better code navigation and debugging, a faster overall IDE, a light install option and increased support for mobile, cross-platform development, among other new features.
