Microsoft’s Visual Studio development suits has been, and probably is, one of the most used development applications out there. With its compatibility with current technologies, it’s no doubt that Microsoft makes it a point to make the package more suitable for today’s demand. The question now is, how will you keep the same development concept and inject new ideas to it? For this version of the Visual Studio, they took one step further by incorporating SDLC (or Software Developmene Life Cycle) concepts throughout all these programs. How did they do it, let’s find out.
We won’t get into the full details or features of the 2010 upgrade, but what we’ll tackle here is how these will help developers produce quality code at a more streamlined pace. As said earlier, the newest version of Visual Studio is packaged to take into consideration the whole development life cycle.
It all starts with the initial functional design. The new Visual Studio allows better collaboration of the functional designers and the developers in order to come up with a more cohesive and feasible deliverables. After the design, the initial development takes case where all the applications we’ve come to know from Microsoft comes in. Now while this is all happening, they’ve also integrated some elements of Microsoft Project to deal with scheduling and capacity planning for the whole project, not just the development. And finally, before everything rolls out, QA testing is also integrated, allowing to produce better code, ready for release.
So yeah, Visual Studio 2010 isn’t just your typical programming application. It’s a full on development suite that allows the creation of optimized working systems from the design, to the actual production itself.
