Tools for Apache Cordova in Visual Studio 2015 RC
We are excited to announce that Visual Studio 2015 RC will include the Tools for Apache Cordova. Starting today, you can build production quality mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows using web technologies and nearly 100% shared code across platforms. With support for native device capabilities (e.g. camera, accelerometer, contact), offline scenarios and popular JavaScript frameworks (e.g. Angular, React and Backbone), the Tools for Apache Cordova contain everything web developers need for building cross-platform mobile apps using Visual Studio.

Asynchronous Programming in ES6 Using Generators and Promises
Asynchronous programming has started gaining a lot of attention over the past couple of years. In JavaScript-oriented  applications, there are a number of cases (viz., making an AJAX call or executing a piece of logic after certain time) where we need to deal with asynchronous logic. Some of the JavaScript APIs that were added to browsers as part of HTML5 (viz., IndexedDb, Geo locations and Web sockets) are asynchronous. Despite of such heavy usage of asynchrony, JavaScript as a language doesn’t support it well. Callbacks are the only way one can handle asynchronous APIs in JavaScript; but the approach fails to scale. For example, when you have to deal with more than 3 levels of nested callbacks, the code starts forming a nice looking tree that is hard to read and understand.

End-to-End Testing in Modern Web Sites and Apps
Software is more complex than ever before. Whether it’s an app for Windows, iOS, Web, Android, an Internet of Things (IoT) device or a smartwatch—that software is doing a lot. Consequently, the software must be accurate. It must work according to specs. So it’s up to developers to test their software.

Scaled Agile Framework: Visual Studio Online process template updates

We are very excited to provide built-in support for the Scale Agile Framework using our existing Scrum, Agile, and CMMI templates. Some time ago, we published a whitepaper: Scaled Agile Framework: Using TFS to support epics, release trains, and multiple backlogs, which detailed how to use TFS to support SAFe practices. In support of that guidance, we also published on the Microsoft Download Center, a set of Process Template Samples with Support for SAFe. With the May 15 deployment of Visual Studio Online, the Agile, Scrum, and CMMI process templates are now updated to include these changes. Read more

Deep Dive Friday: Visual Studio 2015: Debugging for the Win

In the world of development, all too often code that "worked on my machine" has an issue when moved to another.  Other times, developers inherit complex code that may have been documented once upon a time, but many changes later, there's little to help.  Visual Studio 2015 has the answers for these scenarios, and in this deep dive, we'll show you how.  You'll see how historical debugging of applications running on your own or even other machines such as QA or production can save you time and effort.  We'll demonstrate ways to map your active debugging sessions to show code paths and relationships, document dependencies, and make changes to complex applications less daunting.
