Swiss BizSpark Mountain Camp and Visual Studio 15 Preview 2. Boost your coding

Are you a startup looking for a chance to spend four days with the Microsoft Switzerland’s technical team to help you with Microsoft software development related questions? Or are you interested in an intro into new topics such as Windows 10 Universal App development, Microsoft Azure or developing IoT solutions? Then join us for the Swiss BizSpark Mountain Camp 13th – 16th June 2016 in the sunny Ticino! Cost per attendee is only 195 CHF. Check out our Sway for all the details.

At Build 2016, we released our first preview of the next generation of our Visual Studio IDE, currently called “15”. Since then, we have fixed issues and improved experiences in the preview. You can now download Visual Studio “15” Preview 2 to get the latest version with all the improvements.

This is still an unsupported preview , so please refrain from installing it on your production environments.

New features include: Making the account settings dialog more accessible to screen readers, diagnostics improvements to help track down focus related issues, Edit and Continue for XAML apps, and simplified debug configuration in Folder view. Preview 2 also includes the latest Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova Update 9 which supports Cordova 6.1.1.

We are introducing a new light weight installer in Visual Studio “15” to get working within minutes from starting the installer. You can download Preview 2 with the new installer - remember, this is an early preview so the installer doesn’t yet support all Visual Studio features. If you want a fuller set of components, please directly install Visual Studio “15” Preview 2 without the new lightweight installer.

Check out the Visual Studio “15” Preview Release Notes and Visual Studio “15” Preview 2 Known Issues and as always, we welcome your feedback. For problems, let us know via the Report a Problem option in Visual Studio. For suggestions, let us know through UserVoice.
