As JavaScript's ubiquity continues to grow, it becomes increasingly harder for developers—regardless what platform they're targeting—to avoid it. To make the choice of adopting it into your applications easier, Visual Studio 2012 has made JavaScript a truly first-class language. This session demonstrates the enhancements that have been made to the editing experience, such as an IntelliSense and formatting engine that was built from the ground up to support modern libraries and coding patterns, as well as the debugging experience that integrates new diagnostic visualizations, such as an editable DOM tree. Whether you're looking to develop a Windows 8 Metro style application, or an HTML5 web application, Visual Studio 2012 JavaScript tooling will help enhance your productivity.
