What is Visual Studio Online?

Cloud collaboration tools for the entire team

It’s not an IDE, it’s everything else. Visual Studio Online provides a set of cloud-powered collaboration tools that work with your existing IDE or editor, so your team can work effectively on software projects of all shapes and sizes.

What is Visual Studio Online?  

Version control

Unlimited, private, secure

Store and collaborate on code anywhere with private team projects backed by version control. Use Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) for one massively scalable repo, or multiple Git repositories for maximum flexibility.

Tools for agile teams

Kanban, Scrum, dashboards

Be agile, on your terms. Capture, prioritize, and track work with backlogs and customizable Kanban boards. Work items link directly to code to ensure transparency, and can be used to build rich dashboards for easy reporting.

Agile tools  

Continuous integration

Build, validate, deploy

Catch quality issues early with continuous integration (CI) builds that compile and test your application automatically after any code change. Use continuous delivery to automatically deploy applications or websites that pass tests.

Continuous integration  

Languages and tools

Eclipse, Xcode, and more

Use your favorite language and development tool. Version control supports any language, as well as any Git client (including Xcode). Java teams can access code and work items through a free plugin for Eclipse – and run continuous integration builds based on config files from Ant or Mavin.
