Congratulations Visual Studio on 20 amazing years! Join the VS2017 Launch Event

Developer Support

If you were developing code back in ‘97, perhaps you remember the mind blowing concept of Microsoft delivering a single IDE that could do it all.  Up to this point, developers were used to juggling debuggers, compilers, linkers, editors, and more to build integrated solutions.  It was a special time to experience development technology coming together in a way that truly challenged the imagination.  Here’s everything you need.  What can YOU build?  Calling Visual Studio ambitious would be an understatement.

20 years later, we’ve come a long way.  Whatever the platform of choice, developers tend to agree – Visual Studio ROCKS!

Please join Microsoft for the Visual Studio 2017 Launch Event and 20th Anniversary Celebration on March 7th and 8th.
