Windows 10 wasn’t the only big headline yesterday. Microsoft unveiled Visual Studio 2015 along with .NET 2015 for developers. Visual Studio 2015 is available to download now in preview form, which allows developers to submit feedback to Microsoft and begin building applications with the new software. On top of that, Microsoft unveiled a new fully featured and FREE version of Visual Studio and Visual Studio Online.
