Developers can now use Visual Studio Online to quickly create a fully configured development environment for their repositories. and they can use this online editor from anywhere to work on their code. You can learn more about Visual Studio Online over at Microsoft Docs, and try it right now in the here registration link.
Apart from this, Microsoft also brought some new improvements to Visual Studio IntelliCode — which uses AI to offer intelligent suggestions that improve code quality and productivity.
In addition, Visual Studio Online brings together Visual Studio, cloud-hosted developer environments and a web-based editor that’s accessible from anywhere to help developers be more productive than ever,” Microsoft notes in its press materials. “As development becomes more collaborative and open source workflows, like pull requests, become more pervasive, developers need to be able to switch between codebases and projects quickly without losing productivity.”
In its current form, the service is deeply integrated with Microsoft’s GitHub (no surprise there), but the company notes that developers can also attach their own physical and virtual machines to their Visual Studio-based environments. Developers also can create these online environments right from Visual Studio Code, the company’s increasingly popular free code editor for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
