What are the differences between VS Community and VS Express? What will happen to VS Express?

 

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/onecode/archive/2014/11/12/differences-between-visual-studio-community-edition-and-express-editions.aspx

What are the differences between VS Community and VS Express?  What will happen to Visual Studio Express?

First of all, both are free!  Visual Studio Community Edition is newly released today.

There are two main differences between Visual Studio Community Edition and the Express Editions

1) Visual Studio Express Editions do not allow users to use extensions (aka. plugins).  There are over 5000 great plugins for Visual Studio in Visual Studio Gallery.  Plugins such as Developer Assistant can boost developers’ productivity.  Unfortunately, they are not available to Visual Studio Express users.   With Visual Studio Community Edition, you can access and use all these plugins.

2) Visual Studio Express Editions are targeting specific platforms:  Express for Web allows you to develop Web apps;  Express for Windows allows you to develop Windows apps; Express for Windows Desktop allows you to develop desktop apps.  But with Visual Studio Community Edition, you can develop projects targeting cross-platforms.

Soma mentioned in today's Connect event that Visual Studio Community Edition may retire Visual Studio Express Editions in future, but this is not decided yet.

Microsoft releases FREE Visual Studio Community Edition today–it is almost the same as Pro edition, and it’s FREE!

Microsoft releases Visual Studio Community 2013 today.  Free of charge!  It gives you almost all features originally in Visual Studio 2013 Pro. 

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/onecode/archive/2014/11/12/free-visual-studio-community-edition-released-today.aspx 

 

With Visual Studio 2013 Community, you can get Visual Studio extensions that incorporate new languages, features, and development tools into this IDE. (These extensions are available from the Visual Studio Gallery.) Here is how to install the Developer Assistant extension for Visual Studio after the installation of Visual Studio, with which you can get instant code sample help when you are writing C# code projects:

Releasing the new Sample Browser Phone app

Starting its journey in 2010, Sample Browser is achieving its tetralogy by releasing a Windows Phone version Sample Browser today. The new Windows Phone app is the fourth milestone of Sample Browser since we released the desktop version and the Visual Studio version in 2012 and the Windows Store version in 2013. This time, by providing a sample browser designed for a ‘walking’ platform in response to MVPs’ suggestions during last year’s MVP Global Summit, we are literally putting a world of code samples "at developers’ fingertips”. If you like to have a code gallery of over 7000 quality code samples in your pocket, then click here to download our Windows Phone Sample Browser and start a fantastic mobile experience.

With Windows Phone version Sample Browser and the Internet, you can search for code samples on MSDN at anytime and anywhere you want, 24/7 and–even to bed. You can also check code sample details and share them with your friends. Compared to the other 3 pieces in the tetralogy (desktop version, Visual Studio version, and the Windows Store version), the Windows Phone version Sample Browser sells itself for convenience and instant connectivity. For those who need to reach code samples under mobile circumstances where no PCs is available, Windows Phone version Sample Browser will definitely be the right service you are seeking for. Aside from sharing samples via emails as the other 3 do, the Windows Phone version Sample Browser also allows you to share the sample via SMS and Near Field Communication (NFC).

 

What's Next

Currently, the Windows Phone Sample Browser only supports online MSDN code searching, but we already plan to upgrade Sample Browser to allow users to do ‘Bing code search’, and add and manage their private code snippets.  We will also upgrade the app to universal app. Universal App is a new concept brought up in the Microsoft Build Developer Conference 2014. It is a new development model that allows for a single app to be deployed across multiple Windows devices such as Windows Phone, Windows 8.1, and XBox. Therefore, once we finish upgrading Sample Browser to a universal app, you can synchronize your own code snippets across different devices; You can also mark a code sample as favorite on your Windows Phone and continue to study the sample when you are on your desktop. By then, sharing data between platforms will be a piece of cake. Also, the user experience of Sample Browser on different platforms will be more consistent.  The best is yet to come!

 

We sincerely suggest you give Sample Browser a try (click here to download). If you love what you see in Sample Browser, please recommend it to your friends and colleagues. If you encounter any problems or have any suggestions for us, please contact us at onecode@microsoft.com. Your precious opinions and comments are more than welcome.

Oops. Our download counter overflowed with 10 MILLION Downloads Achieved!

When we founded Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework and built the portal 4 years ago, we did not expect that we can become so popular.  (Ok.  I admit that we planned for it Smile).  The sample download counter on our portal has overflowed!

image

 

Our sample download number has exceeded 10 MILLION this month, thanks to your support of our sample effort for collecting and solving developers’ real-world pains and needs. If it’s still the first time that you hear about All-In-One Code Framework, please use our Sample Browser apps to enjoying the learning of thousands of code samples.

 

The sample# and download# growth trends over the past years are promising.  We are committed to produce more and more quality samples that can address developers’ real-world needs.
