I Have Installed Visual Studio

Icon 17 Comments
Tonight, I installed Visual Studio 2010 Pro as part of my student software bundle. I have done nothing interesting with it, or even really used it. However, I now have Microsoft development tools on my computer. This is big. Not just big- huge. It will get even bigger if I start *gasp* learning Microsoft's .NET languages. C# is the most likely.

So for all of those interested- I now have Visual Studio installed.

Good luck man. I used to develop applications for Windows Mobile using C#. Now I'm developing Android and iOS applications using HTML5 and jQuery. Felling a lot better :)

Suddenly I feel my position at the top of the C# rep list is in danger.

@nathan, give Win7P development a shot. It's a lot better than classic Windows Mobile.

@Mac, good for you. Make sure to get the service pack. Also, if you do get into serious development with it. consider Resharper. It's not necessary, but it is awesome.

I started using Visual Studio 2010 ultimate a few weeks ago, and I must say that I miss a lot of the functionality from eclipse ^^
The most annoying part for me is that it doesn't suggest classes from namespaces you haven't imported yet.

I would suggest installing the Productivity power tool extension (Tools -> Extension manager) :) it offers you options like auto bracket completion (I loooooooooooove that ;)

I'd say that's a bug in Eclipse not a feature, suuuurely :dontgetit:

Visual Studio does all those things, it's just located somewhere else in the IDE.

Thanks, everyone!

@Curtis and Sergio: Awesome tips! I'll have to check them out more if/when I get more into developing with Visual Studio.

@Sergio: I've always been one of the cool kids. Installing Visual Studio just makes me that much cooler. :pimp:

ReSharper extension will give you both of those.

nArrange is also handy for cleaning up code and is free.
