Starting with Visual Studio 16.6 Preview 2 the Connected Services tab offers a new experience called Service Dependencies. You can use it to connect your app to Azure services such as Azure SQL, Storage, Key Vault and many others. Wherever possible local emulation options are also available and more are planned for the future.

The HTTP Read-Eval-Print Loop (REPL) is a lightweight, cross-platform command-line tool that's supported everywhere .NET Core is supported. It’s used for making HTTP requests to test ASP.NET Core web APIs and view their results. You can use the HTTPRepl to navigate and interrogate any API in the same
The ASP.NET team has built a command-line tool called HttpRepl. It lets you browse and invoke HTTP services in a similar way to working with files and folders. You give it a starting point (a base URL) and then you can execute commands like “dir” and “cd” to navigate your way around the API:
Once you have identified the API you are
Hopefully by now you’ve seen that [Visual Studio 2019 is now generally available]. As you would expect, we’ve added improvements for web and Azure development. As a starting point, Visual Studio 2019 comes with [a new experience for getting started with your code] and we updated the experience for creating ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core projects to match:
In my previous blog post I talked about how to migrate data from existing on-prem SQL Server instances to Azure SQL Database. If you haven’t heard SQL Server 2008 end of support is coming this summer, so it’s a good time to evaluate moving to an Azure SQL Database.
If you decide to try Azure, chances are you will not be able to immediat

If you weren’t aware, Visual Studio subscribers have free monthly Azure credits, that are ideal for experimenting with and learning about Azure services. When you activate this benefit, it creates a separate Azure subscription with a monthly credit balance that renews each month while you remain an active Visual Studio subscriber. If the cre
Some people say ‘friends don’t let friends right click publish’ but is that true? If they mean that there are great benefits to setting up a CI/CD workflow, that’s true and we will talk more about these benefits in just a minute. First, let’s remind ourselves that the goal isn’t always coming up with the best long-term solution.
Use Application Insights to diagnose performance and errors in your web apps. Azure App Service is a great place to get started hosting and maintaining your web apps. You don’t have to enable App Insights upfront; the option is always there to be turned on when and as needed without re-deployment.
We’re always looking for ways to make developing with Visual Studio faster. One of the tasks developers do many times a day is launching debugging sessions. We identified that script debugging added about 1.5s per F5, but only about 15.5% of people actively debugged script using Visual Studio.
Based on the above, in Visual Studio 15.7
