Visual Studio is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) used by developers to create applications in a variety of languages, including C#, for the Microsoft Windows platform. It provides a series of tools to assist you in writing and modifying programme code, as well as detecting and correcting problems in your applications.
Visual Studio Code's C# functionality is cross-platform optimised. Our goal with VS Code is to make it a superb cross-platform C# editor. C# apps running on.NET Core or Mono can be debugged using VS Code.
The Community edition of Visual Studio is the most basic and is offered for free. "Free, fully-featured IDE for students, open-source, and independent developers," says the Visual Studio Community edition's motto.
Visual Studio.NET is an application development tool for creating apps, and the.NET Framework provides the infrastructure for such applications to run. Technically, Visual Studio isn't required.
Ensure that your machine is capable of running Visual Studio.
