Visual Studio 2012

by Antonio M
Microsoft has posted a preview release of the new Visual Studio 2012. The software is almost
ready for release after a few more minor bug fixing and faster performance optimization.
This new and upcoming version is also being developed to now include the market of mobile
and portable devices. It also has the ability to build applications with Microsoft’s Metro
user interface that will be used in Windows 8. Visual Studio 2012 also has more tools for
making Web Applications to be used across multiple platforms as well as HTML5 and Microsoft’s
new .NET 4.5 version along with new templates to handle Agile, Scrum and other application
building programs in a managed environment.

I think this relates to our class because it is talking about the new version of Visual Studio
2012. What I really like about this new version is how you can now develop Metro-style
applications. I really look forward to this new versions of Visual Studio 2012 and I also look
forward to Windows 8 and the different kinds of applications that can be made with Visual
Studio 2012.

    Interesting article! I wonder how the Visual Studio 2012 will benefit from including options for metro style application. I have played with Microsoft’s Windows 8 and i am not a big fan of the way it works, and people that i have talked to also mentioned that they did not like the new “metro”. Back to Visual Studio, i think this software is very useful for beginners like us as we just use drag and drop to create contents. So hopefully the new Visual Studio 2012 will be even better than the current version.

    Nice Article. I am curious as to how different visual studio 2012 will be. I found it interesting that they are including a tool to build metro apps. I think its a good thing that they are embracing HTML5 and all of the mobile platforms. I think this is a step in the right direction for microsoft.

    Good article I really found it interesting, I have used Windows 8 and found it to be a more friendlier touch screen and app based system. By including development tools to build apps allows us developers to develop new apps to the open market. It is also beneficial for Microsoft to be constantly be updating their system to be relevant in the market.
