Visual Studio 2019 is Microsoft’s integrated development environment (IDE). It’s a complete suite of application programming interfaces (APIs) and essential and intelligent coding tools used to help developers create desktop, web, and mobile applications from beginning to end, all from a single environment. It is compatible with a wide range of platforms, including macOS. It replaces Visual Studio 2017 and is the predecessor to Visual Studio 2022.

Microsoft Visual Studio is a powerful development system with a wide range of built-in tools. The IDE has many features that you’d expect from a modern IDE, such as a full-featured editor, code navigation, a debugger, and a customizable workspace. It integrates with Git too, and supports the following programming languages: C++, C#, F#, Visual Basic, Python, Razor, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, XAML, XML, and TypeScript.
