Visual Studio 2008 Express For Mac

Visual Basic Editor's Review

  1. Visual Studio 2008 Express

With the ever-increasing focus on technology start-ups, there’s no better time to start developing or simply learning to code. Having made that decision, you might be left scratching your head. Choosing a language to learn may be the next logical step, but after that you will want to know what software you need to code. Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Express is a basic and free toolkit to allow you to develop and build applications for the Web, your smart phone, desktop or the cloud.

While billed as software for any level of developer, the people most likely to make use out of this toolkit are beginners. Being free means you don’t have to make any costly commitments to software, which you do not know that you want to keep. Visual Studio 2010 Express works well by integrating the .NET Framework alongside the two supported programming languages: Visual Basic and C#. The suite is easy to use with a shallow learning curve to encourage the amateur user.
Pro's: Basic suite that is easy to pick up.

Con's: Limited in what it can achieve: either through number of languages or possible application it can create.
Conclusion: Visual Basic Studio Express 2010 is, as its name would indicate, an express product offering the very basic options you will need to get your first web or smart phone applications up and running. Before making the commitment to a much more expensive suite such as the Visual Studio that this is a part of, you may find it a wise idea to test out the waters first of all.
If you are a dedicated developer, it is very unlikely you will need this but for a newbie or student, there’s nothing better.
