Visual C#.NET, Part 1: Introduction to Programming Languages - Visual Studio.NET
(Page 6 of 6 )

Visual Studio.NET is a major and important component of Microsoft.NET.  Microsoft has spent many years developing Visual Studio.NET.

When you write C# applications you can use the command-line C# compiler, but it can be a very complicated and tedious process, even when dealing with the simplest C# application, so Microsoft developed Visual Studio.NET.  Using this powerful tool can save you a lot of time when writing applications.  VS.Net provides a drag-and-drop style where you can drag a button and drop it on a form, in the exact position you want, without writing any code; however, if you are using a text-based editor you will have to write many lines of code just to place the button on the form.  Visual studio.NET is the Microsoft development environment for .NET applications, so when you develop .NET applications you will prefer to use Visual Studio.NET.

Conclusion

In part one of this article series, we've taken a look at the .NET Platform, the .NET Framework, as well as a quick look at Visual Studio.NET, the development tool of choice for .NET developers.  We also had a brief look at the history of programming languages, including machine code, assembly language, as well as high-level languages, such as C#.  In the next installment, we'll take a look at compiling .NET code, managed code vs. unmanaged code, an overview of the C# language, and much more.
