1-click AWS Deployment   1-click Azure Deployment 1-click Google Deployment

Overview

Visual Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft. It is used to develop computer programs, as well as websites, web apps, web services and mobile apps. Visual Studio uses Microsoft software development platforms such as Windows API, Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Store and Microsoft Silverlight. It can produce both native code and managed code.

There are a number of new features and improvements that come with this release of Microsoft Visual Studio 2019. Some of them are,Improved search experience,Refactorings improved,Better IntelliCode,Cloud-first workflow,Integrated Code reviews,Better performance.

Features

Major Features of Visual Studio 2019

Formerly known as Quick Launch, our new search experience is faster and more effective. Now, search results appear dynamically as you type. And, search results can often include keyboard shortcuts for commands, so that you can more easily memorize them for future use.

Refactorings

There are lots of new and highly useful refactorings in C# that make it easier to organize your code. They show up as suggestions in the light bulb and include actions such as moving members to interface or base class, adjusting namespaces to match folder structure, convert foreach-loops to Linq queries, and more. Simply invoke the refactorings by pressing Ctrl+. and selecting the action you want to take.

IntelliCode

Visual Studio IntelliCode enhances your software development efforts by using artificial intelligence (AI). IntelliCode trains across 2,000 open-source projects on GitHub—each with over 100 stars—to generate its recommendations.

Code cleanup

Paired with a new document health indicator is a new code cleanup command. You can use this new command to identify and then fix both warnings and suggestions with the click of a button.

Per-monitor aware (PMA) rendering

If you use monitors that are configured with different display scale factors, or connect remotely to a machine with display scale factors that are different from your main device, you might notice that Visual Studio looks blurry or renders at the wrong scale.

Live Share

Visual Studio Live Share is a developer service that allows you to share a codebase and its context with a teammate and get instant bidirectional collaboration directly from within Visual Studio. With Live Share, a teammate can read, navigate, edit, and debug a project that you’ve shared with them, and do so seamlessly and securely.

Integrated code reviews

We’re introducing a new extension that you can download to use with Visual Studio 2019. With this new extension, you can review, run, and even debug pull requests from your team without leaving Visual Studio. We support code in both GitHub and Azure DevOps repositories.

Search while debugging

You’ve probably been there before, looking in the Watch window for a string amongst a set of values. In Visual Studio 2019, we’ve added search in the Watch, Locals, and Autos windows to help you find the objects and values you’re looking for.
