Visual Studio 2010 has launched! (watch the launch online)
I started programming at age 12 – I attended a nice course given by a university student on MS DOS and BASIC language. When I program I go into what is called by psychologists “The Flow” – total immersion when my mind is occupied by nothing but me and the code.
Unfortunately sometimes I am pulled away from “the flow” when the tool is not good. When I have to take 2 or 3 or 5 clicks to do what mentally I think of as one action; when I have to write multiple lines of code to do mechanical work; when I have to switch continuously between several contexts just to get something integrated especially the Data Base; when all of that happens programming becomes tiring and boring.
I’ve used many programming tools on all kinds of operating systems: C++ Builder, Eclipse (3+ years), vim, emacs (2+ years), JBuilder, AnyJ, KDevelop (1.5 years), … and I came to the same conclusion that I keep hearing from many even non-MS developers: Visual Studio is the best, fastest, most efficient IDE, period.
Well, today is a great day because the best of the series is out – the Visual Studio 2010.
What’s is so exciting about VS 2010?
Give it a try, and enjoy “The Flow”
