Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012 Features
Develop Apps with Tools for Collaboration, Quick Building, and All the Platforms You Need
No app is going to be easy to develop. It takes time, creativity, expertise, and a lot of tools. So, what designers and developers need is a program that emphasizes those qualities and makes the most of them, allowing its users to work at their optimal level and create the apps they need.
That’s exactly what Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012 accomplishes with all of the following features:
Develop for all your major platforms: Users aren’t satisfied with apps they can only get in one location, so you need to be able to design across platforms. That’s precisely what you get with Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012. Build for the cloud, the phone, Windows, Office, SharePoint, and the browser, among other options.
Develop apps specifically for Windows 8: This is perhaps the biggest feature in Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012. Windows 8 debuted as the most app-focused operating system Microsoft has ever released. Visual Studio walks you through how to get licensed to develop for Windows 8 and then provides templates to speed up the whole process. In no time, you’ll be coding apps for the best app environment available.
Work more efficiently from a new user interface: Visual Studio has always had an excellent user interface (UI), but Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012 manages to make it even better. The color panel is more monochrome, which makes the shades stand out more. There’s also new tab pinning which comes with the new UI.
Modify your apps more efficiently with Expression Blend: Tweak your apps more effectively without having to manually code XAML when you work with Expression Blend in Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012.
