Visual Studio 2017 RC review: a look at what’s new and improved

| 2 min. (251 words)

There’s no better time than now to start looking into new tools and technologies that are being released. At Connect(); 2016 Microsoft announced the availability of Visual Studio 2017 Release Candidate. This has given me a chance to install it for myself and take a deeper look at what is coming for this Visual Studio 2017 RC review. 

Note from Microsoft: As we prepare for release, we’re continuing to evolve the list of workloads. In particular, because the .NET Core, Xamarin, Python, and Data Science workloads have not yet reached RC-quality, we have marked them as Preview quality. These three workloads should not be relied on in a production environment at this stage.

In this article, I’ll take a look at what is new and improved with Visual Studio coming into 2017, so you can get a feel of what is coming up before you try it out for yourself.
