Last week we announced many new Visual Studio updates, including Ionic support in the Cordova Extension for Visual Studio Code, and Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova (TACO) Update 8. In this post, I’ll highlight the main changes included in the Visual Studio TACO Update 8 release – which you already have If you installed Visual Studio 2015 Update 2!
With our Cordova Tools Extension for Visual Studio Code, you can use your existing web skills to build cross-platform hybrid mobile applications for iOS, Android, and other platforms. This means that you can create and maintain one project to target millions of potential customers using various mobile devices.
The year has gotten off to a great start and it seems that .NET, the web, and TypeScript get the prize for the most popular topics!

Human beings validate and continually improve their performances through extensive training, practice, rehearsals, and after-the-fact reviews. We achieve these same ends in software development through many levels of rigorous testing—or continuous validation—across the entire app lifecycle.
