And then once you have installed everything you will see, in Visual Studio 2013, pretty cool right?  Just make sure to state that you use the Arduino IDE in your about statements.  Also, if you have an extra $29 US, or similar in British Pounds, send them some of this cash their way.  They have videos on how to use, there is intellisense and so forth.  Making your learning how to program Arduinos all that much easier!
