Microsoft Visual Studio is a full-featured integrated development environment (IDE) with powerful coding productivity features, cross-platform mobile development tools for Windows, iOS and Android, tools for web and cloud development, and access to thousands of extensions.
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.
Visual Studio includes a code editor supporting IntelliSense (the code completion component) as well as code refactoring. The integrated debugger works both as a source-level debugger and a machine-level debugger. Other built-in tools include a forms designer for building GUI applications, web designer, class designer, and database schema designer.
Microsoft Visual Studio is available in three editions: Community (Replaced Express), Professional and Enterprise. Compare Visual Studio editions
