At its BUILD 2015 conference today, Microsoft has announced a brand new way for developers to easily work with their code on Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX. Visual Studio Code is a new free tool for more intelligent and efficient coding on any platform, featuring deep integration with existing Microsoft developer tools.
Microsoft’s intention is to make it easier for these developers to build such applications without diving into the full Microsoft experience on software like the full Visual Studio suite, which remains a Windows-exclusive piece of software. Visual Studio Code will also help developers integrate with Microsoft’s existing cloud development solutions powered by Azure or Visual Studio Online Best of all, the software is free and will continue to be free for any and all developers, no matter what system they use it on.
