This year marked the first edition of  Connect(), a live virtual event which took place in New York on November 18 - 19, 2015.  The event focused on a variety of announcements surrounding the popular Visual Studio product line including Visual Studio Online and the Visual Studio IDE.  The topics range from utilizing Azure alongside your build process to  language improvements and even Android emulator support!  You can find the complete series online @ Channel 9

Today's post is centered on introducing some of the IDE improvements included in Visual Studio 2015 Update 1, released on November 30, 2015 and announced at Connect().  A full listing of these features may be found @ the Visual Studio Blog.  However, rather than introduce these features as a simple write-up, I though it might be more interactive to show some of these additions in action with a video showcase. 


These improvements include:

Syntax Highlighting & Intellisense support for Bash Shell Scripts, CMake, Perl, Go, Groovy, Java, Javadoc, Lua, Markdown, R, Ruby, Swift, and YAML

An Interactive Read, Evaluate, Print, Loop (REPL) for C#

Updated Integration and Support for Git / GitHub featuring a new Pull Request Hub

Nuget 3.3 now supported out of box

For a full list, see the Visual Studio Blog
