Writing and compiling code using Microsoft Visual Studio 2015

We will now recreate the same application using Microsoft Visual Studio 2015.

I have been training students to use Visual Studio for over a decade, and I am always surprised at how many programmers fail to use the tool to their advantage.

Over the next few pages, I will slowly walk you through typing a line of code. It may seem redundant, but you will benefit from seeing what help and information Visual Studio provides as you enter your code. If you want to become a fast, accurate coder, letting Visual Studio write most of your code for you is a huge benefit!
