Ship software faster
Streamline and automate the workflow between development and IT operations and deploy applications faster. After deployment is complete, close the loop between production and development and fix bugs faster with real insights and data captured directly in production.
Create and empower agile teams
Agile tools and project management capabilities are optimized for enterprise-scale projects. That makes it easier to manage work across projects and teams in an environment that’s productive and easy to use.
No more "no repro"
Go back in time with code execution history for .NET code. Using the diagnostic tools in Visual Studio 2015 and IntelliTrace, you can see the history of your code’s execution and navigate back in time to inspect state without manually setting breakpoints. This will save you a lot of time that you can spend more productively.
Write higher quality code
Use IntelliTest to quickly generate relevant unit tests for your code automatically. It dramatically reduces the effort it takes to create unit tests for new or existing code, so you can focus on building features instead.
Unlimited load testing
Understand what your application can handle and avoid nasty surprises in production. Whether issues are caused by worldwide distribution, the scale of your customer base, or problems that only manifest in multi-day runs, Visual Studio load testing will give you the analytics to solve problems before you deploy.
Everything you need to build great apps
With a Visual Studio subscription, you get the tools, services, benefits, and resources you need to stay up on all things code. This includes access to core Microsoft software for development and test, monthly cloud credits, collaboration tools, training courses, professional support, and more.
