This huge transformation for Visual Studio to enable the creation of any application is two-fold, on the server and on the client:
On the client side, Visual Studio 2015 provides a solution to create first-class applications for any device including iOS, Android and Windows.
On the server side, just like the rest of the Microsoft platform, Visual Studio is embracing Linux and provides a development environment for creating server applications that run on Linux.
We will also support major platforms in our ALM tooling – with features like cross-platform build and heterogenous release management offered by TFS 2015 and Visual Studio Online
What about “every developer”?
Last year, at our Connect() event we made a significant announcement targeted at individual developers, such as students, start-ups, small businesses.
With VS Community, eligible developers can use a full IDE, equivalent to the current VS Professional edition, for creating applications across the cloud and devices – for free!
But what about Enterprises?
With Visual Studio 2015, we are making it easier for enterprises to acquire and use Visual Studio, with a simpler model that will give developers working in organizations easier and more affordable access to Visual Studio. In this new model, we have introduced a new edition of Visual Studio called Visual Studio Enterprise.
