As you can see in the VS2013 Preview, we have not added new language features to C# and Visual Basic in the next version of Visual Studio. I’d like to share our thinking on this. There are essentially two main reasons why we chose not to evolve the languages this time around.

The Roslyn Services API makes it easy to implement extensions that detect and fix code issues directly in Visual Studio. The Roslyn Services API is available as part of the Roslyn CTP.

I’m intrigued by all the interesting industry apps being developed for the Kinect. I started wondering how easy it is to start programming the Kinect using Visual Studio on a PC. It is very easy to get started,
There’s been a lot of posts on using the Roslyn CTP APIs for syntax trees, semantic binding, and IDE smart editor features. The Roslyn CTP also introduces a set of features for C# we refer to as “Interactive”.

The new Async feature in Visual Studio makes it easy to code asynchronous method calls. To make synchronous code asynchronous, you can simply call an asynchronous method instead of a synchronous method and add a few keywords to the code,
Mads and Dustin showed off their cool VB and C# team t-shirts at BUILD and tons of people liked them and asked where they could get one.
For the last six years you’ve heard us go on and on about this Roslyn thing and how it’s the platform for the future and would change everything and that we were all-in on it and “it’s going to be great just wait and see”.
“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure.”
On April 3, 2014, Anders Hejlsberg set us on our open source journey when he made the .NET Compiler Platform (aka “Roslyn”) source code public live on stage in San Francisco.
It’s the beginning of a new year! According to Back to the Future Part II, everyone will be riding hoverboards in a couple months (and, let’s be honest, Doc would love the HoloLens). In the meantime,
It’s official. We’re moving to GitHub!
We are moving the Roslyn OSS code from CodePlex to GitHub. GitHub has a vibrant open source community that we want to actively be a part of and contribute to.
C# 6 is the version of C# that ships with VS 2015 Preview. The philosophy behind this version is straightforward: improve simple everyday coding scenarios, without adding much conceptual baggage. The features should make code lighter without making the language heavier.
The Rosetta lander Philae wasn’t the only thing in space last week. Our launch of Visual Studio 2015 Preview and our announcement to open source the full .NET server stack were out of this world.
Our team has put together a set of short videos to highlight some of our work in Visual Studio 2015 Preview. Check them out to learn more about what’s new in C# and VB, how F# can be good for enterprise,
