Visual Studio and Xamarin
Deliver enterprise-grade mobile apps
Visual Studio Enterprise now includes Xamarin features for Android, iOS and Windows app development. Create applications with native performance, and native UI, using enterprise-grade tools. Optimize your applications performance with profiling data, and inspect them at runtime to find bugs faster. Validate quality on real devices with discounted access to the Xamarin Test Cloud, and when ready, distribute your apps to an app store or in-house.
Streamline and automate the workflow between development and IT operations and deploy applications faster. The Release Management capabilities in Visual Studio 2015 enable you to deploy continuously and define release stages, acceptance criteria, and approval workflows to automate the release process. After deployment is complete, close the loop between production and development and fix bugs faster with real insights and data captured directly in production.
Use innovative modeling tools and create the high-quality, mission-critical software that is the engine of your business. Easily manage dependencies and even the largest codebases with tools for code mapping and architectural discovery. Use advanced monitoring and debugging tools to identify, triage and fix complex application issues faster than ever.
No more “no repro”
Go back in time with code execution history for .NET code
As you edit and run your .NET code locally, you encounter an unexpected behavior — this could be a bug! Diagnosing such issues can sometimes take hours of searching through source code and repeated guesses where to set breakpoints. Using the diagnostic tools in Visual Studio 2015 and IntelliTrace, you can see the history of your code’s execution and navigate back in time to inspect state without manually setting breakpoints. This will save you a lot of time that you can spend more productively instead.
Use IntelliTest to quickly generate relevant unit tests for your code — automatically. IntelliTest dramatically reduces the effort involved in creating unit tests for new or existing code, so you can focus on building features instead. Easily create sets of unit tests for legacy code that has never been looked at before and increase path coverage and code quality — with minimum effort.
Understand what your application can handle before you deploy
Visual Studio makes integrating load testing into your development process easy, and will help you avoid nasty surprises in production. Whether those surprises are caused by worldwide distribution, the scale of your customer base or problems that only manifest in multi-day runs, Visual Studio load testing will give you the analytics to solve those problems before you deploy.
