    Microsoft Launches Free, Unrestricted Version Of Visual Studio For Small Teams

    Microsoft today launched the Community 2013 edition of Visual Studio, which essentially replaces the very limited Visual Studio Express version the company has been offering for a few years now.

    There is a huge difference between Visual Studio Express and the aptly named Visual Studio 2013 Community edition, though: The new version is extensible, so get access to the over 5,100 extensions now in the Visual Studio ecosystem. It’s basically a full version of Visual Studio with no restrictions, except that you can’t use it in an enterprise setting and for teams with more than five people (you can, however, use it for any other kind of commercial and non-commercial project).

    “The simple way to think about this is that we are broadening up access to Visual Studio,” Microsoft’s corporate VP of its Developer Division S. “Soma” Somasegar told me in an interview late last month. Somasegar told me that the Community Edition will allow you to build any kind of application for the Web, mobile devices, desktop and the cloud. “It’s a full features version of Visual Studio,” he noted. “It includes the full richness of the Visual Studio extensions and ecosystem.”

    IC745539This means you get access to all the usual Visual Studio tools like Peek, Code Analysis, Graphical Debugging and more.

    This is awesome news, as well as changes to VS2015, and some massive changes to ASP.Net, all of which we'll be looking at in an upcoming course Nelson and I are working on!

    Their sudden willingness to work with Linux is refreshing. And a little creepy coming from Microsoft, but we'll take it!

    Another nice surprise is that Resharper works with the 2013 Community Edition.
    I know 2013 isn't Nelson's favourite version, but I'll take it.
