About this book

Learn the details of the most highly recommended practices of software development using the latest version of Visual Studio 2015. Recommended practices are grouped by development phase and explained in far more detail than the typical tips and tricks compilations. This book also contains detailed coverage of recognized patterns and practices used to create software in a timely manner with expected quality in the context of using specific Visual Studio 2015 features.  
Creating software is part defined process and part empirical process.  While there is no single “best” process to employ in all development scenarios, MVP author Peter Ritchie helps readers navigate the complexity of development options and decide which techniques and Visual Studio 2015 features to use based on the needs of their particular project. Readers will learn practices such as those related to working in teams, design and architecture, refactoring, source code control workflows, unit testing, performance testing, coding practices, use of common patterns, code analysis, IDE extensions, and more.

What You Will Learn

  • Use patterns and practices within Visual Studio
  • Implement practices of software creation
  • Work in teams
  • Develop workflows for software projects
Who This Book Is For

Reviews

“The book is 90% about how to write good software and some 10% about how to write this good software in Visual Studio. … Indeed, the book goes beyond MS Visual Studio, which I find really a big plus! In general, it went beyond my expectations, because it has shown how to make a software project in general, without being narrow-minded into MS Visual Studio.” (Vitosh Academy, vitoshacademy.com, April, 2017)
