Summary

Visual Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE). Visual Studio 2017 is much faster than the earlier version of Visual Studio. It has a reduced start up time of IDE. Visual Studio 2017 provides us two ways installation, one is Workloads based and other is individual component base installation so the installation is very easy compared to the earlier versions.

Visual Studio 2017 comes with lots of changes in IntelliSense and now, we can find out the IntelliSense for the members like Interfaces, Classes, Enum, Structure, Delegate, Namespace etc. Therefore, it will be very easy to find out the code in large solution.Visual Studio 2017 has an online feature to report any bugs. The problems or feedback can be sent to Visual Studio Team. We can also see the existing problems or feedbacks, which have been raised by the other users as well.

Visual Studio 2017  included Xamarin/Docker, which gives support to make the mobile development easy. Now we can create Android, iOS and Windows Apps in Visual Studio.
