Get started with Visual Studio 2017

Introduction

Visual Studio is an interactive development environment (IDE) that emphasizes writing and debugging code productively. You can use Visual Studio to write code in C#, Visual Basic, JavaScript, TypeScript, Python, R, and more.

In these docs, we’ll give you a quick overview of the editor and introduce you to some of its key features. You’ll also learn how to create and run a program, how to use Visual Studio’s code editing features to be more productive, and how to catch errors in your code using Visual Studio’s debugger.
